Corrected entry: A race car comes around a corner and slides out of control towards the camera. The next shot is from another camera farther down the track and as the car slides towards the guard rail you can see the first camera and its operator who leaps back in surprise. The next shot is from the first camera as the car accelerates away and back onto the track.

Correction: A film cameraman in shot is realistic, even if accidentally so. In those days it was normal for film cameramen to be employed by the marketing departments of a race's automotive sponsors to make publicity films of major races to be shown free of charge at motor club evenings around the world.
