If you weren’t watching the cricket World Cup at Lords, the men’s singles final at Wimbledon or even the British Grand Prix at Silverstone then the place to be to watch exciting live sport was Chateau Impney near Montpellier Droitwich in Worcestershire. It was here that Janie Maeers and Geof Wilson spent the weekend, displaying VJ 1756, Janie’s 1929 Minor Tourer in the grounds of the chateau while the famous Chateau Impney Hill Climb took place around them.

Another mystery Minor

Minor images continue to surface on eBay. This 35mm Kodachrome slide is one such recent example and depicts an unknown 1931 season Morris Minor Coachbuilt Saloon parked outside of an outboard motor service facility somewhere in the UK. The photo was processed in September 1971 according to the information printed onto the cardboard slide mount, it’s therefore likely that this Minor survives to this day. If anyone can identify the car from any visual clues to be seen, then please contact

Triple M corner no.146

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.

Two images, both taken at Donington Park prior to the start of a ladies race in 1935 show Doreen Evans in the cockpit of her Q Type MG. (LATfilm Motor L197-18 & L197-20 courtesy Motorsport Images)
