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.
Date: 4th July 1931 Venue: Brooklands Event: J.C.C. Members Day. Three MG M Type Midgets line up on the grid front row for a handicap race at the JCC Members Day meeting. Car no. 74 is a Sportsman’s Coupe about to be driven by M.V. Jellicoe, while Miss J. Bowman’s MG 12/12 (it could either be an 8/45 model or one of the original 1930 race cars) sits alongside Widman’s Triumph Super Seven. The third M Type, carrying its spare wheel on its scuttle, is registered TP 9650 and is wearing racing no. 28. A Riley Brooklands and an unidentified car beyond the Sportsman’s Coupe make up the remainder of the front row. (Image – Bill Brunell)
