Triple M Corner no.16

By April 4, 2016 April 6th, 2016 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 eleventh running of the  MCC Sporting Trial took place on 17th October 1931, starting and finishing in Buxton, Derbyshire. The trial commenced at 10:00 AM with 50 cars taking part all of which were required to make two circuits of the course including the four observed hills. W. W. Whitnall took part in PG 993, a 1929 Surrey registered MG Coupe Special (perhaps a Jarvis model?) collecting a Premier Award. Whitnall entered another four pre-war Sporting Trials exclusively using a Morris Minor as his car of choice on each occasion. (LAT Plate B7289)
