On this day (September 14th) in 1933, George Eyston took three Class H records in MG EX127 at #Brooklands doing 106.7mph in the 50km, 50 mile and 100km classes. It would go on to achieve even more in its time.

This was the Magic Midget, the 750 cc. single-seater record car, with oblique transmission, which, after a great deal of trying, in the face of all manner of misfortunes, was to achieve 120 mph, again in the hands of George Eyston. It had a long and arduous life, and in 1935, when owned and driven by the German Kohlrausch, put the flying mile for Class H up to 140.6 mph.
