I thought it would be useful to collate links to any rare, unusual or puzzling old British motorsport film clips from the 1940's and 1950's. These can be commercial or amateur. Ideally ones that are accessible on the Internet.


Here are three to start with, taken on the personal 9.5mm cine camera of Derek Buckler designer of Buckler cars but cameraman uncertain at times, as Derek appears in his own car.
