    Background: Practice times were extremely fast during the three days of practice at Kyalami, Johannesburg for the South African Grand Prix, the first of the 1971 World Championship series.

    The lap record went on Wednesday to Britain's Jackie Stewart, who was 2.5 secs. inside the official time, making an average speed of 117.9 miles per hour. He took the pole position with Chris Amon of New Zealand in a Matra-Simca, and Clay Regazzoni of Switzerland in a Ferrari.

    This coverage from Visnews cameraman Maurice De Wit is of Friday's final practice session.
