JD Barnes' Austin Seven, with hood up for the first two laps to comply with Tourist Trophy rules that year, completing at the first Ulster TT Race at Ards in 1928. An initial leader of the race, due to the considerable handicap advantage of his car's class, Don Barnes crashed losing his position, but still going on to complete 23 of the 28 laps of the race.
These little supercharged Austin racers caused such a buzz at the early Ulster TT races that they became affectionately known as "Ulsters".
