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.
Fingle Bridge, Dartmoor 29th December 1934
Three MGs , two Midgets and a Magna await their turn in a beautiful winter setting before ascending the hill at Fingle Bridge during the course of the 1934 MCC London-Exeter Trial. Leading the way in car number 165 is H.E.F. Maddrell who went on to collect a Silver award as did R.J. Harter in the Magna (166) at the rear. A close examination of this LAT image C5153 reveals that the almost completely concealed competition number of the middle car ends in a 7. If the car’s competition number was 167 then it was driven by J. Shewell-Cooper who also went on to collect a Silver award.
