    "C/U as girl opens roof of Marcos car." - although described by the commentator as a Marcos, this vehicle is actually the Adams Probe 15, dreamed up by former Marcos car designers Dennis and Peter Adams.

    "M/S man holding steering wheel in Lotus 78. C/U engine of Lotus 78." - in each case, this should actually read Lotus 7.
