Triple M corner no.40

By December 1, 2016Triple M corner

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.

MG J2 Midget RX 9980 has featured earlier in this series (Triple M corner no.7) that photo being taken at the February 1933 running of the Sunbac Colmore Cup Trial as it is in this Brunell/Getty image. The winter of 1932/33 was particularly harsh and conditions for the trial were difficult for competitors. The Midget was being driven by J.R. Temple and was the very same car that The Autocar had used in it’s road test of the type in August of the previous year.
