Triple M corner no.157

By October 29, 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.

This is a Bill Brunell image of RX 8306, a 1931 MG C Type. A present day survivor, RX 8306 had an extremely varied competition career during the early thirties. Here the car is taking part in  what is believed to to be the 1932 running of the Inter Varsity Trial, driven by H.S. Linfield, the editor of the Autocar magazine. It also took part in circuit racing at Brooklands, hill climbing at Shelsley, speed trials at Lewes, and was driven on Pendine sands by G.E.T. Eyston in a class H ‘Flying Mile’ record attempt on 4th January 1932. It’s currently owned by Chris Cadman who continues to race the car in VSCC and other historic events.
