    British light cars triumph in Monte Carlo - girls compete as well.

  • Description

    Full title reads "France BRITISH LIGHT CARS TRIUMPH in the Monte Carlo rally - World's great motor car test."

    Monte Carlo, Monaco.

    Nice shot of the streets of Monte Carlo. A long shot of the start. A man moves the flag and a woman wearing a dress runs towards her car, gets in and and drives off. A car is seen moving through an arch and stopping.

    A man moves the flag and another person (a man) runs, enter his car and drives off. A car driving along a large number 8 - showing manoeuvring skills. A car drives towards the camera. A man waves the flag and the car stops.

    Two girls leaning on their car with flowers in their hands. They have St George's Cross on their pockets. Another two girls with flowers leaning on their car. Another two girls standing next to their car, each on her side next to the car door.

    There is no soundtrack for this item so story remains unclear.

    The Monte Carlo Rally seen here ran from 20-24 January 1934.

    Seen at 01:06 is a Triumph Gloria Monte Carlo Tourer, Reg. No. KV 6906. This car is still running as of 2012.

    "Another two girls with flowers leaning on their car." - the two women are Mme M Mareuse and Mlle Gonnot beside their Peugeot 301.
