Thornycroft entered two cars for the 1907 Isle of Man TT, a 14hp and a 30hp. The 30hp car ran out of petrol during the heavy car race, and the rules prevented replenishment.
This is one of the surviving Thornycroft's from the following year's event and now registered DS6684, but carried AI-180 in the TT (possibly a Manx temporary registration). It was entered by Guy Baxendale but taken over by Tom Thornycroft when his own car was damaged, and driven to 5th place by TT with Baxendale as passenger, and then kept by the family afterwards hence its survival, albeit with a completely replica two seat body which bears little resemblance to that it wore in the 1908 TT.
