    "British motor racing event at Goodwood" - the event is The Goodwood Trophy.

    The event took place on 30 September 1950.

    "featuring Raymond Mays in a B.R.M." - Mays is not IN the BRM, but was involved in the production of the car.

    "Maseratti" should read Maserati, (4 changes required in all).

    "getting into B.R.M" - the car is a BRM Type 15.

    Prince Bira's Maserati is a Maserati 4CLT/48.
