The Magic Midget - MG Racing History
MG was a British sports car manufacturer founded in the 1920s by Cecil Kimber. Best known for its two-seat open sports cars, MG also produced saloons and coup├ęs. LIke many manufacturers, MG went racing to generate publicity and to show off its performance abilities. From its earliest days MGs have been used in competition and from the early 1930s a series of dedicated racing cars such as the 1931 C-Type and 1934 Q-type were made and sold to enthusiasts who received considerable company assistance. This stopped in 1935 when MG was formally merged with Morris Motors and the Competition Department closed down. A series of experimental cars had also been made allowing Captain George Eyston to take several world speed records. In spite of the formal racing ban, speed record attempts continued with Goldie Gardner exceeding 200 mph (320 km/h) in the 1100 cc EX135 in 1939. After World War II record breaking attempts restarted with 500 cc and 750 cc records being taken in the late 1940s. A decision was also taken to return to racing and a team of MGAs was entered in the tragedy-laden 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans race, the best car achieving 12th place.

1963 Mk1 MG Midget
Initially, the Mk1 (GAN1) MG Midgets introduced in 1961 retained the drum brakes and 948cc A-series engine from the Frogeye Sprite, albeit in a slightly higher state of tune. But from Motor Show time in 1962 these cars were transformed when they received a 1098cc engine (giving the biggest incremental power increase of any modern Midget) and disc brakes. The car in this video clip is a later (GAN2 or 'Mk1.5') car which has been owned by the same family since 1973 and restored to near-original condition. Look out for the MGA coupe which makes an un-scripted appearance in the 6th minute.
