    The event shown here is the "Specialist Sports Car Show".

    The car seen directly after the MG is the Royale F100.

    Then at 00:27, (before the appearance of the beach buggy), we see a lady playing in a miniature car - it's TV personality Katie Boyle.

    At 00:38, after the beach buggy, we see a sports car with the registration number "XPA 8". It's a Piper GTT P2.

    Following that, at 00:43, we see a Lotus Europa.

    Further to my earlier comment, the car Katie Boyle is sitting in at 00:27 is, according to the attached press photo, a "Barnard". (Ignore their "date of photography" being "2011", it's clearly from this event in 1970......

    By the way Katie Boyle has one of the most fantastic birth names ever - it is apparently "Caterina Irene Elena Maria Imperiali di Francavilla"! Beat that!!
