The Light Car & Edwardian Section Journal is the official organ of that august VSCC body. Its editor is Mike Tebbett who took this image of Sue and Richard Woodward in the ex Rosemary Burke OHC engined 1931 £100 Minor Two-seater. The photo was taken during a recent VMR tour. Ironically, had the event been organised by the LC&ES, BR 8606 would not have been permitted to take part, it being built after 31st December 1930 as well as being ‘modified’, both disqualifying factors within the section’s rule book.

IOTW no.605


PJ 1691 is an autumn 1931 Surrey registration, thus making this an early 1932 season Morris Minor Two-seater. We also know from the handwritten caption on the reverse that the photo was taken in December 1933 confirming that the car was just over two years old at that time. It also looks very well cared for, with almost new tyres and gleaming paintwork. A further caption also reveals via a cryptic two words that the name of the very well dressed women is likely to be “Anxious Annie”.  (Ex Tim Harding Collection image)

Triple M corner no.245

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.

Date: 19th August 1933 Venue: Donington Park

The year 1933 saw the Donington circuit in Leicestershire open as a new venue for motor racing in the U.K. The event held on 19th August that year was organised by the Derby & District Motor Club and was the third in a series of four such meetings to take place in that inaugural season. The circuit was to undergo some serious changes over the coming months as there were a number of ‘pinch-points’ on the track where overtaking was extremely dangerous, in fact ‘no overtaking’ signs were erected to underline to drivers the danger involved. Here H.C. Hamilton in his MG Magnette (28) passes through such an obstacle on his way to victory in the last 5 lap race of the day, taking just 10 minutes and 36 seconds in doing so, while averaging 61.8 mph.
