Triple M corner no.133

By | Triple M corner

The Triple M series of MG’s all belong to a family of models that commenced with the 1929 MG Midget and continued through to the mid-thirties via a long string of four and six cylinder OHC engined cars that forged the marques identity.

This great photo of an unidentified MG C Type Montlhery Midget was taken at a damp Donington Park on 24th March 1934. This was the first meeting on the newly extended course, its length now being 2 miles 1000 yards. (LATplate C2828 courtesy of Motorsport Images)
