Triple M corner no.174

By April 10, 2020Triple 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 the MG K3 Magnette (K3003) that was driven by Capt. George Eyston at the 1933 Mannin Beg race held in Douglas, Isle-of-Man. This race was not the K3’s finest hour with all six cars entered being forced to retire, three with differential failure. Eyston’s K3 retired with vertical drive failure although it was later test driven by S.C.H. Davis for an August 1933 Autocar magazine feature. (LATplates L5870 & 5871 courtesy of Motorsport Images)
