MG Car Club Abingdon Trial 1939

When this photograph was taken in 1939, Minor Two-seater YY 7277 was already six years old, the model having been out of production since July 1934. W. C. Greenleaf was a regular competitor in the car,  a number of photographs appearing in both the Light Car and Morris Owner magazines. This shot shows the car needing a helping hand as it struggles to find grip on a muddy Chiltern incline during the course of the MG Car Club’s annual Abingdon Trial in the run-up to the start of WWII. The photograph was taken by noted motoring photographer Bill Brunell.
