Driving Tips With Paddy Hopkirk (1964)

"Paddy Hopkirk is seen driving his red Monte Carlo rally driving Mini, number 37, on the skid track, backing it through obstacles and skid turning. C/U of a photographer's press camera. There are lots of shots of the car on the track, including point of view shots from a car in front . We then see Paddy, in a light blue Mini, driving around on the local suburban streets and some countryside roads."

How different to today, from what I could see he was driving in his mack, no seat belts, helmet, roll cage, and a reporter sitting sideways interviewing him as he does a 120mph drift round the circuit, how things have changed.
AND they wouldnt have stood a chance if it had rolled.

And they all had the same slogan "safety first"
