Triple M corner no.156

By October 22, 2019 Triple 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.

Date: 13th May 1933 Venue: Donington Park – Second Donington Meeting. E.R. ‘Eddie’ Hall’s C Type Midget leads R.F. Turner’s Austin Seven Sports in the 3rd event of the day at the recently opened Donington circuit. The  5-lap race lasted just 11 minutes & 28 seconds with Hall comfortably beating Turner’s Austin Seven, which finished 2nd. Later that afternoon, Hall won the 5th event, another 5-lapper, in 11minutes 24 seconds,  4 seconds quicker than in event 3. Consistency personified.
