    BARC Meeting in 1923 at Brooklands

    The car (No.1) seen at 04:55 is John Parry-Thomas's Leyland Eight. There is an odd dark shape in front of the riding mechanic (seen more clearly at 07:19). This may be due to the fact that his passenger in the Autumn "Short Handicap" race was a "cinematograph operator" (I wonder where that footage is?).
    The car (No.2) seen at 06:32 is Captain J.E. Howey in a second Leyland Eight.
    Also seen in this film is one of the bullet-shaped silver Wolseley Moths.
