Triple M Corner no.249

By December 28, 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: Brooklands Date: 3rd March 1933 Event: JCC Brooklands Rally

Motor Sport magazine records that the weather for the JCC Rally was “…appalling, there being heavy snow in the morning which thawed into floods, and left a water splash at the foot of the Test Hill.” It’s then safe to assume that this photo was taken in the morning although the footprints and newly created tyre tracks on the banking indicate that the thaw is already underway. Here 1933 MG J2 Midget (OY 3988) along with 1932 Wolseley Hornet Special (GX 8792) attempt to circulate on The Member’s Banking, presumably to test the conditions which are clearly unsuitable for racing. Neither driver’s name is mentioned on the caption which appears on the reverse of this LATphotoscan. (Courtesy of Motorsport Images)
