David Brown in the second of the Villiers-supercharged TT Vauxhalls. (This one also with "Villiers Vauxhall Supercharged Special" painted on the bonnet). He had a successful day, winning all the straight mile events and the 20-Miles Race. The Autocar reported "Racing has never had more appalling conditions". The attraction of subjecting one's costly racing motor car to salt spray and sand in the bitter cold of mid-January is perhaps a little hard to fathom.
