MG PA Sports

Owned by successful driver E H Banfield in the 1930s.

The PA was a roomier, more comfortable successor to the earlier M, C and J-Type MGs, and popular amongst amateur racing and trials drivers. This car was originally delivered in January 1935 to E H Banfield, a successful trials and competitions driver throughout the 1930s. Although he won many awards in this car, Banfield didn’t race at Brooklands.

Banfield took part in the RAC rallies of 1934 and 1935, achieving a First-Class award in his MG Midget in 1935. In 1934, he achieved First Class Awards in the Brighton to Beer and Colmore Trials.
