    Jess Pourret with his GTO still on number plates 23 (la creuse department where Mas du clos is) when he bought it from Bardinon, great vid so frustrating there is no sound. Fantastic quality in quantity thanks for posting. After the Prescott hillclimb the next segment at a circuit that is Oulton Park.

    Red SWB opens its door when making the first turn at 7:36. Yikes.

    Also, weird Campagnolo style alloys on the GTO 64, they look like Miura wheels.

    Cool to see these cars get driven. Thanks for posting!

    This 250 GTO is 3413GT, then owned by Anthony Bamford (now Lord), as were many other Ferraris in this film. Thinking about it he owned 3 GTOs at this time, 3413GT, 3527GT and 4399GT as well as not long before the film, 3909GT, which is seen later on in the film, when owned by the Harrison Brothers.

    Same meeting:
    Longtime FOC UK secretary and multiple Ferrari book author Godfrey Eaton (purple shirt), while (I believe from my poor old memory) the man in the back in the darkblue suit is Peter Stubberfield, also of the FOC UK.

    0152 EL at the hillclimb. Don't remember anymore if at the time in 1972 it was still owned by John Ward of Coventry or already by David Shute of Somerset.
