• Short Summary

    Small girl drives a racing car, then her younger brother has a go.

  • Description

    Saltdean, East Sussex.

    A racing car leaves a garage, driven by a man (Allan Brown?). He is followed by 5-year-old Jane Chase in a tiny racing car. She pulls up beside a mechanic who adjusts something in the car, then she drives off.

    Jane is then lifted out of the car by a Allan Brown and 3-year-old John Chase is put into the driving seat. He is shown how to work the controls then drives about. Jane watches. Commentator says "She's picking up a few tips from John".

    Cataloguer's note: in spite of commentator's remark, it is plain to see that Jane can drive perfectly well on her own, and I think this story should have been called 'Girl Driver'!

    Cutting on file calls 3-year-old boy Nicholas Chase, not John.
