Triple M corner no.294

By April 28, 2023Triple M corner

The 1935 Mannin Beg was run on Friday 31st May around the streets of Douglas, Isle-of-Man. Just thirteen cars started the race, seven of which were M.G.’s. This image was taken in the pits just before the start of the race. The three R Type M.G.s in the foreground in this LATphoto (C6220) were to be driven by Eyston (bending over car no. 16), Handley and Black. In what was almost a repeat of the 1933 event just two cars finished the race. The winning car was an ERA driven by Fairfield, while Dixon’s Riley was classified second. The Motor Sport magazine’s correspondent blamed the poor condition of the road surface on the decimation of the field. (Courtesy Motorsport Images)
