Says a Flavia Coupe but is it wrong...?

Watching Motor Films Quarterly Vol 7 last night (Mrs L away on a business trip) there were a pair of Flavia Sports - a red one with big HF stickers and a silver one which was the "Hazard" spinning on some circuit.  Turns out - for all the English commentary was saying how poorly they performed - Hazard got the pot.  It was a Standard Triumph film so the Renaults were "special bodied and highly modified" etc while the Spitfires (looking more like a GT6) used production indicator switches etc.

Having said that 15th for any Spitfire was impressive...

I now see there were three Flavia Sports.  Two DNFs.  Perhaps both Sports failed and the Coupe took the class and the commentary is wrong?  Looks like I'll be asking Santa for Vol 8 to get part two of that film.  Perhaps its the database wrong?  Did I see a Coupe in the film?

FYI - That database lists Flavia Zagato and Flavia Sport Zagatos separately.

The Sport won the class as far as I know.
