1930 MCC ‘Exeter’

Here is a recently discovered Morris Minor saloon photograph from the LAT Collection (B5299), which was taken at the 1930 MCC London-Exeter Trial. The car’s competition number of 151 identifies it (via Cowbourne) as being driven by M. Longridge. The car’s registration is partialy obscured by mud or a badge and reads as GC 7?17, making it a London 1930 registration. It’s lack of a ‘Morris’ script on the radiator would indicate that it’s a 1930 season car, although it’s impossible from this head-on shot to determine whiich of the two  saloon versions this one is. Unfortunately for Mr. Longridge, he had to retire the car and therefore did not gain an award. (Courtesy of Motorsport Images)
