Triple M Corner no.10

By February 7, 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.

Three factory sponsored MG PA’s entered by George Eyston were co-driven by six women at the 1935 Le Mans event. Dubbed Eyston’s Dancing Daughters by the press in part homage to a well known all female dancing troupe of the period the team performed very well, bringing all three cars home.  Two of the cars can be seen in this LAT image (C6331), car 55 being driven by either Doreen Evans or Barbara Skinner (of White Minor fame) while car 57 had either Coleen Eaton or Margaret Allan at the wheel. The third PA was driven by Joan Richmond and Barbara Simpson.
