Video: Mille Miglia-winning Magnette returns to Abingdon

Published 22 September 2015

An MG Magnette that won the Mille Miglia race returned home to Abingdon earlier this month. K3003 won the legendary race in 1933 and stopped off to visit the MG Car Club after being on display at this year’s Goodwood Revival.

The car was the first non-Italian Mille Miglia winner - it also won the Ulster TT in the same year. In fact, such are the achievements of the MG K3s of 1933, that a new book has been written about them. It’s called The Mighty MG Magnettes of ’33 and has been written by Graham Cocks.

K3003's owner, Peter Briggs, said he regretted not racing the car at the Goowood Revival - but at least he did get time to take it for a spin around Oxfordshire.
