Triple M corner no.178

By May 16, 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.

F. Gordon Crosby (The Autocar) and Bryan De Grineau (The Motor) were artistic contributors to their respective motoring magazines from the first decade of the twentieth century through to the latter part of the thirties  (De Grineau) and until the commencement of WWII (Crosby). Their work was invariably produced against tight deadlines as they attempted to capture (primarily) sporting action that the camera had missed. Here, in a rare colour image, Crosby records a moment from the 1933 RAC TT as Nuvolari passes the pits in his K3 MG Magnette on his way to a famous victory. The image is a scan of a colour plate from the book Circuit Dust written bt Barre Lyndon and first published by John Miles in 1934.
