Triple M Corner no.9

By February 1, 2016February 19th, 2016Triple 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.

This image was taken on 8th December 1934 on an observed section of the MCC’s London-Gloucester Trial.  MG J2 Midget no. 57 KV 5437 (a 1933 Coventry registered car) was being driven by Mrs. M.M. Riley who went on to win the Ladies Cup that day, successfully completing all 13 sections of the tough course. Her mud bespattered male crew member looks as if he has deliberately left his arm resting in the wake of the detritus thrown up by the car’s front wheels. LAT Plate C5071
