I thought I had seen this or something similar as I remember the various "Royal Boxes" around the circuit.

150,000. I went to most of the F1 races in the UK during the 1970's. After the race we would sit in the car for a couple of hours and have sandwiches by which time the traffic had eased. Leaving Brands Hatch was interesting as there were traffic cones to give the A20 North 2 lanes.

Excellent footage, junior has a mild obsession about Alfa 158 and 159 Alfettas so I'll show him this tomorrow. Amusing to see Prince Bira bagging a ride in a Riley RM to the circuit.
