HRG 1951

 

Great Britain

HRG Sports two-seater produced by HRG Engineering Co. Ltd, Kingston-by-Pass, Tolworth, Surrey. Available with either an 1100-cc (from 1939) or 1500-cc (from 1935) twin-carburettor engine, the open model changed relatively little through the years although variations on the familiar body style did appear just after the war (1500 Aerodynamic). HRGs have a reputation for reliability, and, not surprisingly, numerous competition successes including in the late 1940s-the Belgian 24-hour race (two years running) and the Alpine Trial.
