    "CU nose view of the winning car" - that isn't the winning car, (the winning car, No. 23, is seen later). This vehicle is a Simca Eight Sport.

    "Mrs Rouault and Mrs Gordine holding their Cups, pan to their Simca car" - the ladies are Germaine Rouault and Regine Gordine, and the trophy is the Coupe de Dames. Their car is a Simca Eight.

    "MS man getting into Hotchkiss car." - there are two men, Marcel Becquart and Henri Secret, and the car is an Hotchkiss 686 CGS. This is the car that won the event.
