Some nice low shots of cars approaching the camera. Lots of shots of the race. Cars are driven past the crowd with celebrating drivers and team sitting on the bonnet. Graham Hill is seen in some of these shots. Some of the drivers, including Lorenzo Bandini (co-driver Ludovico Scarfiotti), are interviewed. A man sleeps in a hammock beside the track. More shots of the cars. One car leaves the road. Some shots of the cars driving in semidarkness (either dusk or dawn). More footage of the race.
Some of the footage appears to be too fast - possibly filmed this way to give impression of high speed.
