Triple M corner no.271

By August 6, 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.

While road racing was banned from the U.K. mainland, that wasn’t the case in Northern Ireland. The RAC held their Tourist Trophy races over the Ards circuit attracting many of the big name drivers and manufacturers to County Down each August. This photo, taken at the 1932 event, depicts Goldie Gardiner’s team of MG Midgets along with their crew members, including Paul and Hendy before the start of what was to become a disastrous race for the marque. A Riley won the event in a little under five hours, while just two of the nine MGs to start eventually made it to the finish.
