    The race at Brands Hatch is The Guards International Trophy. It took place on 30 August 1965.

    "Jackie Stewart coming to a stop in his car" - the car is a Lola T-70.

    "John Surtees in his Lola 70" should read Lola T-70.

    "Jim Clark in his Lotus" - it's a Lotus 40 Ford.

    "McLaren going past." - his car is a McLaren Elva Oldsmobile.

    The footage currently given the location of Hednesford is taking place at the Hednesford Hills Raceway.
