Triple M corner no.220

By March 23, 2021Triple 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.

The ‘Musketeers’ and ‘Crackers‘ teams were effectively MG factory supported, although the cars were notionally owned by their drivers. They successfully competed in the trials and rallies of the period, their drivers becoming well known, even outside of motor sporting circles. JB 3639 was a 1934 Berkshire registered ‘P Type’ and was owned by R.A. MacDermid. Car and crew are seen here taking part in the first of two special tests on the promenade at the Blackpool Rally, held over 12th-14th June 1936 where MacDermid and JB 3639 went on to earn a First Class award.
