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.
W.S. Whittard was behind the wheel of this MG J2 Midget (DG 5458), while taking part in the Sunbac Colmore Trial on 24th February 1934, the photo being taken on Gypsy Lane. Whittard was also to take part in all five remaining Colmore Trials prior to the outbreak of WWII, on each occasion driving an MG. Unfortunately, in the year this photograph was taken he failed to collect an award. (LAT Autocar photoscan – courtesy of Motorsport Images.)
