Vehicle ID Please.

In an aviation group there is a current vehicle ID debate, and no solution.

The vehicle in question is towing a Wright Flyer, at the Bournemouth, Aviation Week in July 1910. This is the event where Charles Rolls was killed after crashing his Wright Flyer, becoming the second person to be killed in a UK aviation accident, and the first to be killed in a powered aviation accident in the UK. There is no evidence that this was the Wright Flyer flown by Rolls.

I am including the original image and a crop showing a bit more of the radiator.
If anybody here is able to ID this ghost from the past, it would be appreciated.
