Its the earlier version. Those two slots in rail is for the red fabric securing straps that secure the wheels. Were available fairly recently from fiamma.

I don't really like them. We hit a big speed hump in Spain and it was left hanging on by one hook.

Ah I see.

I have just looked on Fiamma's site and they still sell the red straps though Im guessing any securing strap should do the trick??

I have the same type, I bought longer straps cheap from a sunday market and cut them down
then use a ratchet strap on each bike around the frame
