All you need to know about the Register and how to get on the Grid.

The Triple-M Register
The Triple-M Register is a part of the M.G. Car Club, one of the largest and longest established one-make car clubs in the world. The name derives from the ohc-engined MG Midget, Magna and Magnette cars built from 1929 to 1936 – hence ‘Triple-M’.
For over 50 years the M.G. Car Club Triple-M Register has been looking after the interests of the pre-war overhead cam M.G. models and helping owners throughout the world keep their cars on the road.By maintaining a register of all known cars, we can preserve their history and provenance, whilst offering access to the best technical and spares expertise available anywhere.
Whether you are already enjoying Triple-M ownership or just thinking about it, the register will have something to offer you. By joining the M.G. Car Club you automatically become a member of The Triple-M Register and you can be sure that you are doing the best for your car.
A detailed description of the purpose and operation of the Register, the guidelines applicable to listing and inclusion in the Register and the allocation of Register numbers are given on the website.
There are four main annual Triple-M Register awards, designed to encourage owners of Triple-M cars to use them for the purpose that they were designed competition!
The primary award The Car Of The Year otherwise known as COTY, covers all types of event, including marshalling, where Triple-M cars are involved. As the name implies, the points scored are for the car not the driver.
There are also three specific awards where the driver scores the points:-
  • The Slade Trophy, which is for trialling.
  • The Speed Championship, sprints and hill climbs.
  • The Racing Challenge "The Betty Haig Cup" , which is specifically for racing
