CORGI - MGA - 1956 ALPINE RALLY - NANCY MITCHELL


Nancy Mitchell drove MGs of various types on European events throughout 1956, and won the European Ladies' Rally Championship by doing so; a feat she repeated in 1957. MBL 867 played a remarkable part in that first championship victory giving her wins in the Ladies' Class on the Mille Miglia and the Alpine Rally before rounding the season off with a second in the Ladies' Class on the gruelling Liege-Rome-Liege; an event where finishing is, in itself, an achievement. MBL is modelled here in the form in which it started the Alpine Rally, which not only led to the victory in 'the Ladies', as it was known, but the award of a coveted Coupe des Alpes, something many male crews failed to achieve. Release date: September 2007. See more.
