That'll be the smog from all the coal fires. With all the lentil eating Guardian readers getting log burners London will soon be suffering from smog again.

Great picture but looks more the Circuit of Ireland Rally with Gallaher sponsorship and red number plate on the FIAT.

I can't recall where I found this but nice to see that some people were living in colour in the 1960's

1969 or 1970, note the price of petrol is 6/- (shillings). Decimalisation happened in February 1971.

The late Paul Lips owned the car.

The information from www.redandwhite.it for the car is

http://www.redandwhite.it/ORX7FLaStoria.htm

Quote:
After a year it was sold to the BMC dealer in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Andrews and Co.
Two years later it was bought by a private man, James Cathcart, who used it a lot in the Irish rally.
