Triple M corner no.128

By February 10, 2019 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.

The 1931 MAC Shelsley Walsh Open Meeting was held on July 11th, just a few short weeks after the final Double-Twelve event was held at Brooklands. It was at that Brooklands event that the team of 750 cc supercharged MG ‘C’ Type Montlhery Midgets swept all before them, as well as providing the outright winner. To capitalise on this success, two cars from that all-conquering team were demonstrated to the large Shelsley crowd that day and can be seen here ascending the hill together, driven by Hall and Eyston, hence ‘H’ and ‘E’. A cropped version of this image first appeared in the August 1931 edition of Motor Sport magazine on page 470. (Photo courtesy of Motorsport Images)
