By November 15, 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.

Date: 12th December 1931, Event: MCC London-Gloucester Trial

With the light failing, H.S. Linfield pilots his MG C Type Midget (RX 8606) around a sharp bend watched by a crowd of onlookers. Linfield was at that time a journalist for The Autocar and rose to the position of editor, a post he held for many years. He won a Silver Cup award for his efforts that day. The Midget survives and is regularly raced by current custodian, Chris Cadman. (Extract from LATplate B7389 – courtesy of Motorsport Images)
