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.

Great example of sports and news reporting, and of 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.
