    Motor racing in Britain compared to same in United States.

  • Description

    Motor racing shot - looks like Brooklands. The camera follows a very fast car around the track.

    This is compared to the United States of America where "they encourage motor racing on dirt tracks." High angle shot of a race meeting. Lots of spectators watch cars speed around the track. Various shots of the race and of the very large crowds. Shots from lots of different angles, low on the track and high amongst the spectators. Shot of the end of the race where a man stands in the middle of the track and waves a flag.
