This 1948 MG TC was the second MG purchased in our collection. Don Martine purchased this TC in Pacific Grove in 1964.

I have no information on it’s early racing history. I have raced this TC since 1975 in autocross, rallies and on the track. It has run at Riverside, Portland, Sears, Thunderhill, Laguna Seca, etc. It is normally a top 10 finisher. I have run more than 75 races with 2 DNF’s.
