    The footage footage shown here features action from two completely different events.

    I believe that the first 69 seconds shows action from the Jarama 4 Hours event at the Jarama racetrack in Spain in 1971. Certainly the No. 21 Escort and the No. 1 Ford Capri seen in the clip match photos I've seen of that event. Other reasons making me think it's Spain are that there are numerous adverts around the racetrack for the Spanish car-maker SEAT. Also, the unusual towering structure seen at 0:12 strongly resembles the old control tower that existed at Jarama.

    At 1:10 the footage abruptly switches to a rally event. All I can say with any certainty is that one of the two men in the Ford Escort at 1:16 is Henry Liddon. I don't know what the event is.
