"Paddy Hopkirk is seen driving his red Monte Carlo rally driving Mini, number 37, on the skid track, backing it through obstacles and skid turning. C/U of a photographer's press camera. There are lots of shots of the car on the track, including point of view shots from a car in front . We then see Paddy, in a light blue Mini, driving around on the local suburban streets and some countryside roads."

Anybody know what village or road section Paddy's driving through?  I can make out from a road sign that 'it looks' as if he's on the A415 & 21miles from Witney in Oxfordshire.

Comments to the video on the Mk1 Forum were:-

 

"That's the main route from Longbridge to Abingdon isn't it ?"

"I'm pretty sure it's the A4074. It's the road between Cowley and Abingdon."
