    Sydney Allard's car is an Allard P1.

    "Allard's co-driver" - it's not his co-driver, but his personal assistant Tom Lush.

  2. jamied says

    Tom Lush seen here apparently acted as navigator and timekeeper for the event.

  3. British Pathé says

    Thanks for the tip on the personal assistant.
