  • Short Summary

    Henry Segrave makes his record breaking run in his Sunbeam Car.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "203.792 miles an hour. Major Segrave and his 1,000 h.p British Sunbeam breaks all word records."

    Daytona Sands

    M/S as mechanics surround the car, with wheels removed. M/S Segrave seated in the car talking to a bystander. High shot from above of the car racing along the beach. M/S waiting timekeepers. Segrave congratulated by mechanics, being carried aloft through crowds.

    Note: See also *PM0676* -676.17 for repeat as above without Segrave congratulated by mechanics, being carried aloft through crowds.
    Great example of sports and news reporting, and film editing using a shot tracking the record breaking run from the air, and editing the aerial shots with shots of the car coming towards and past camera.
