Michael Jacobsen --
1934 MG Magnette Spl. / Pete Thelander -- 1934 MG NE
Photogenic early MGs in the esses.
Jacobsen and his Magnette
Special and Thelander in his NE
were both non-starters (according to my printed results) in Sunday's "Group
A" and "Race Group MG" events.
Next is Ernie Page in his 1933
MG L1, also listed as a non-starter in both events.
|(4-9-12) From Michael Jacobsen:
"The car just got an engine rebore and
general overhaul. Did I tell you that last summer I learned it was
raced by the original owner (Dr. Raetz of Cologne) at the Nurburgring in
1936? He put the rubber band suspension it it; I also found a pix
of Harvey Mayer in the car from 1948 (we bought it from Harvey in '53).
Both photos attached.
photo shows the original NA 2 seat body; the Mayer
photo (taken by Dick van Osten editor of Auto Speed and Sport) shows
the bungee IFS and the lightened body."
