Humber Motor Cars at the 1914 TT

Like many Motor Company's Humber were keen to prove their products by entering Motor Races. One such event is the Royal Automobile Club International Tourist Trophy at the Isle of Man. The three cars entered for the 1914 event are shown outside the Mitre Hotel at Douglas. Sam Wright who also raced Humber Motor Cycles can be seen standing behind the car he raced in the event car No 20. However this car eventually retiring on lap 14 of the 16 lap race. The race was won by a Sunbeam in 10 hours 36 minutes.
I do like the smart waiter seen under the ' T ' of Hotel....haven't I seen him on Fawlty Towers?
