    Race was held on 19 August 1961.

    "Innis Ireland" should read Innes Ireland.

    Moss's car is a Ferrari 250 GT SWB, as is that of Parkes.

    "A Markelson" is Alan Markelson.

    "Moss after being presented with a birthday cake" - it's not a birthday cake, its simply a cake that marks his 7th Tourist Trophy win.

    Moss is driving the Ferrari 250GT SWB in Rob Walker colours (dark blue with white nose band).

    The last shot shows Stirling Moss and Rob Walker holding the TT trophy.

    Thanks for this - unless it was a very early birthday cake, you are quite right!
