    "Stirling Moss arrives at Circuit and parks his car" - it's a Saab.

    "Moss getting into his Lotus racing car" - it's a Lotus 19.

    1959-63 would be a far closer date range for this clip than the current 1960-69.

    I've now found another clip containing elements of this footage in finished newsreel form. It's clip 1686.27. The information contained in that clip enables some changes to be made here.........

    "Racing circuit, somewhere in Britain" - it's Silverstone, Northamptonshire.

    "Moss, with his wife Katie, and another young woman" -actually the blonder lady is his sister Pat Moss, while the other lady is a friend, Helga Mayerhofer.

    The other clip is dated 1960.
