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 May 1934 running of the Mannin Beg race around the streets of Douglas, I.O.M. was a momentous one for the M.G. Car Company. Of the eight classified finishers, no less than seven were M.G.s with the first five places all being filled by Magnettes. This was in total contrast to the 1933 event when just one M.G. finished the race from the twelve cars entered. Here, G.E.T. Eyston pilots Magnette no. 8 along the promenade on his way to a 3rd-place finish. (LATplate C3683 courtesy of Motorsport Images)
