No titles. Gordon Bennett Motor Race on 2/7/1903.

Location of events unknown.

Several shots of open cars racing round a right hand bend in the road course, with crowds watching on grassy banks.

M/S of car slowing down (in pits?). The driver takes off his goggles and talks to some men gathering round the car. The man in the passenger seat leans over the seat and refuels the car with a can of petrol, then they move off. Another car comes into pit for refuelling.

M/Ss of cars zooming along straight stretch of open, countryside road. General views of cars going along country road with crowds watching from grassy banks and a spectator stand that seems to be erected on a bridge over the road.
