    The event was held on 6 September 1947.

    The car described as a "Lagonda 1934" is a 1934 Lagonda M45 T7 Tourer.

    The Allard shown is an Allard P1.

    CORRECTION: The Allard in this clip is not, as previously stated, an Allard P1. There are, however, three Allard cars visible during the clip.
