Triple M corner no.254

By February 2, 2022Triple 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 Southport Sand Races was a very popular fixture on the motor sporting calendar throughout the twenties and thirties. It always attracted plenty of entries and the August 1932 running was no exception as is clearly evident via this short British Pathe clip. The still image above depicts a Stiles bodied MG F Type Magna special (WM 7730) negotiating a sharp bend on a circuit that just a few hours later may well have been underwater as the incoming tide engulfed the sands.
