MG 'M-Type'

Restored to represent the car raced by Victoria Worsley in the 1930 Brooklands Double Twelve race.

Victoria Worsley was the daughter of a baronet and worked for her father as a chauffeur. She began her motorsport career in 1928 after a lucky bet on a horse allowed her to buy her first racing car, a Salmson. By 1930, she had switched to an MG M-Type and finished 20th in the 1930 JCC (Junior Car Club) Double Twelve race.

The MG M Type was a sports version of the Morris Minor, and popularly known as the Midget. Using contemporary photographs this replica of Victoria Worsley’s car was built by Brooklands volunteer Colin Reynolds, from an incomplete chassis and engine found in a garage in Oxfordshire.
