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.
1931 MG C Type Midget (RX 8306) has an illustrious sporting history. Campaigned today by Chris Cadman, back in December 1931 (12th) it was the editor of The Autocar, H. S. Linfield who was behind the wheel and pushing hard in this shot. He was competing in that year’s NWLMC London- Gloucester Trial and is seen here storming one of the observed hills (perhaps Ferriscourt). His efforts didn’t go unrewarded as he came away with a Silver Cup. (LATplate B7386 courtesy of Motorsport Images)
