Brooklands at its best…

By Headline News

The VSCC’s Brooklands Driving Tests event is a firm New Year fixture in the club’s calendar. This year the day was blessed with glorious winter sunshine and as a result a much larger than usual crowd attended. They were treated to some spirited driving, particularly from David Rolfe in his Riley engined MG M Type special (VU 7908). Here he is seen at the end of a test sharing a joke with a marshall.

1934 season Minor 5 cwt van advertisement – Fish Trades Gazette

The Network’s archive contains very few advertisements, or promotional material of any stype, for the Minor 5 cwt van, something of a failing, as the 5 cwt van was the second only to the Minor Saloon in the sales stakes.  This recently sourced advertisement for a 1934 season model (with eddy free front!) goes a little way towards correcting that anomoly. It’s interesting to see that Morris Motors trawled the business journals (an awful pun – apologies) to find suitable periodicals in which to advertise their Light Vans.

Triple M corner no.165

By Triple M corner

The Triple M series of MG’s (Midget, Magna & Magnette) 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 Varsity Speed Trials took place each spring between teams representing Oxford and Cambridge Universities. In 1930 the event took place on closed estate roads near Newmarket, Suffolk. Here an unnamed undergraduate heads towards the photographer as he pilots a stripped-down MG Midget, devoid of headlamps, wings, valances and windscreen, yet carrying a passenger?
