This MG K3 has undergone a stunning restoration

There are many very familiar images from the early Goodwood meetings of 1948. Duncan Hamilton rounding Woodcote in a Maserati 6CM, a painfully young Moss in his white Cooper 500 or the dapper Freddie March overseeing the birth of his legacy. Then you have others, like this one, of pre- and post-war Voiturette British racers tearing away from the Daily Graphic start line banner. Cars developed by enterprising garagistes to compete at Brooklands, Donington and Crystal Palace that spent the war years under a tarpaulin in Kentish cattle shed. A couple of these are readily identifiable. The MG Bellevue on the far right takes a wide line, number 41 is the Parnell MG, the grill of another blown MG peeks through, but what of the car out in front?
