Can't find on IMDB but -
Another Look at Life from Rank films shown as cinema 'fillers '.
For some reason few of the films on the Vol. 4 Sport DVD compilation seem to have been listed anywhere.

Any names given for the team members? With the Bedfordshire and farming connection, F3 & F1 racing driver and bobsleigh driver, Henry Taylor was born at Shefford, Bedfordshire, to a farming family in 1932.

Taylor’s love of speed also saw him become an established bobsleigh driver in the Gt Britain team in the late 1950s. He also drove a Ford Cortina down the bobsleigh run at Cortina d’Ampezzo...

From the brief look I had of the bob sleigh run at the 2018 Winter Olympics on tv, I don't think a car would fit down there. Design ideas have changed I guess.

Thank you JCB.

According to this bbc item Robin Dixon's cousin John Bingham who later become the infamous Lord Lucan suggested in 1957 to Dixon he take up bobsleigh, a sport he was unaware of, after being a successful sprinter.

Very interesting Sunbar , so they did get a Gold eventually ! it all looks very amateurish in this film with wooly jumpers and hand painted mismatched crash helmets for our team. See he also mentions the Land Rover.
