    "Car No 11, 1901 Renault" - actually, it's an 1899 Decauville Vis-a-vis.

    "Car No 2, 1900 de Dion Bouton" is a 1902 De Dion Bouton Type G 4.5hp Vis-a-vis.

    Line 6 - "1902 de Sion" should read 1902 De Dion Bouton Double-phaeton.

    The car at 00:30, (Reg. No. C 459), is a 1901 Renault Tonneau.
