    The date of the event is 10 September 1932.

    Car Number 1 seen twice during the clip was the Leyland-Thomas of Elsie Wisdom.

    Thanks jamied. We've added Elsie to the record.

    "Car No. 10 is driven back into the pits. The driver gives a short interview to the newsreel - she says that the wind held down their speed. The driver - presumably the winner Miss Peggy Naismith - sits on top of her car and is cheered by the crowd."
    - Eirane "Paddie" Naismith was an actress, racing driver and aviatrix. Her picture was used as the first colour television transmission image in 1940 (she was a striking redhead).
