By July 6, 2021July 8th, 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.

Venue : Donington Park Event: Nuffield Trophy Meeting Date:  4th July 1936. D.S. Hanley sits on the grid in his supercharged 746 cc MG prior to the start of the 10 lap (25 mile) Junior Handicap race. Hanley finished in third place behind Else (MG) and McLure (Riley) at an average speed of 54.31 mph. However, he did finish ahead of two very accomplished drivers in Ken Wharton (Austin) and Richard Bolster (Bolster Special) who finished fourth and fifth respectively.
