    Background: Dear Neil,
    Herewith extra footage of the cars shown to the press at Silverstone.

    One spool of film shows the eight cars moving round the track in the form of a cavalcade. The film starts with a high view of the procession moving towards and under camera. From then on the camera moves round the track with the cavalcade, at times showing all the cars and moving in close for shots of one car and details etc;. Cars shown individually are the Mini Clubman, Mini 1275 G.T., Mini Estate, 1300 G.T. The M.G. range of cars i.e. Sprite, Midget, MGB., MGB.GT. are only shown together but still rather close up. All is shot on the move and all exterior details should been seen clearly.

    A sequence has been shot on the 1300 G.T. as follows.

    A little bit of film has been shot on the Mini 1275 G.T. i.e, 3/4 front of the car stationery. Driver gets in, C.U. front wheel trim, wheel spins fast and the car moves off rapidly to a 3/4 rear shot of car.

    One spool has been shot on just action shots of the Mini 1275 G.T. and the 1300 G.T. on the track.

    Total adds up to another 600'. I had a shock when 1 gathered it up to send to you. Still better too much than not enough. It'll keep your editor busy to. Ernie Souch.
