History:
C-Type Midget In 1931, Abingdon, taking its racing very seriously indeed, produced 44, 746cc racing C-Types or Montlhery Midgets.

 

This particular example, the pride of owner Ross Kelly from Queensland and the only one of its type in Australia, raced with considerable success at Brooklands, finishing 3rd outright at the 1931 Double Twelve, with Hugh Hamilton at the wheel.

 

It also set a 750cc lap record in the RAC Ulster TT at Newtonards before finishing first in its class at the 1932 JCC British 1,000-Mile Race at Brooklands
