    What we are seeing here are preparations for the BRDC "Daily Express" International Trophy. The race was held on 25 April 1968.

    "Jackie Ickx" should read Jacky Ickx.

    As Graham Hill speaks at 00:33, the man in the flat cap is Lotus team boss Colin Chapman.

    Perhaps the name of the race could replace the current rather non-descriptive title of this clip?
