Triple M corner no.186

By July 11, 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.

Images from the 1932 RAC Ards T.T. race feature here regularly as almost a third of the 34 car field were built in Abingdon. However, just two of the ten cars classified as finishing the race were MG Midgets – Hall in third place with Low in tenth. Here the MG C Type Midget no. 29 driven by Barnes is about to be passed by the Rose-Richards Talbot 105 along a straight stretch of the road circuit. Barnes failed to finish the race after his blower ceased to function. (LATplate B 8897 courtesy of Motorsport Images)
