For #7 - I think this is 1930 BRDC 500 Miles at Brooklands - but #7 not identified in http://www.racingsportscars.com/entry/Brooklands-1930-10-04-9523.html which is the only list I've found.

Still alive and apparently was a Riley Brooklands 2 seater sports (but clearly much smaller than the big Riley Nine Brooklands in the same race), raced by John Eason Gibson which appeared in races, road events and trials eg Link to "www.motoringpicturelibrary.com" , Link to "www.motoringpicturelibrary.com" , Link to "www.riley-prewar-special.com" etc. Then in 1934 big rebuild/redesign as John Eason Gibson Special and then later returned to original body - Link to "www.riley-prewar-special.com" . Despite current plate info, no trace found of recent history.

Compared to other pictures of Nine Brooklands - eg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Riley_Nine_Brooklands_1929.jpg - this seems about right size, which throws up questions for the other 2 - clearly bigger - Rileys in this film.
