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.
This scene from the 1930 running of the MCC Sporting Trial is one of a series taken by Bill Brunell at that event. Getty Images have now obtained the rights to Brunell’s back catalogue including many historic photographs and are displaying them at a reasonable pixel width on their website. A search of their website is a must for anyone with an interest in pre-war motoring.
This shot was taken at the commencement of an observed section somewhere in the Peak District and shows R.D. Crump’s 1929 Essex registered Midget (VX 2286) about to leave. Car no. 45 is another Midget (RX 7206) driven by L.A. Welch while the MG Six is being driven by C.F. Dobson. Crump went on to collect a bronze award.
