Bridget the Midget is a 1977 MG Midget 1500, classic British sports car. She earned her place in MG history when in 2008/9 she became the first MG to circumnavigate the globe in a single run.
This site is dedicated to all her long distance (over 5,000 miles – 8,000 kms) runs. So far Bridget has visited 52 countries around the world, including two war zones, driven on six of the worlds’ seven continents and touched all five oceans.
Bridget was originally a ‘classic’ all black MG Midget, but has been British Racing Green and is currently Ferrari Red with Yellow detailing. No major modifications have been made to her chassis other than the addition of a Sump Guard.
Bridget now has a big brother, Bertie the B. Bertie is a 1968, Snowberry White, MGB; with an Oselli fast road engine, and a few other refinements.
