This year’s Malta Classic event is scheduled for October 6 to 9 and will feature a Hill Climb, Concours d’Elegance, practice and timed laps, and the final race on the circuit outside Mdina’s fortifications.
Now in its sixth year, the event celebrates vintage style set against Malta’s historic backdrops.
This year will see 70 participants from England, Italy, France, Malta and Switzerland. A variety of notable makes will form the grid, including Riley, Alvis, Ferrari, Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, Lancia and Talbot. The organising committee is also accepting expressions of interest from non-members who’d like to make a contribution.
“For the third consecutive year, we at the Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa are thrilled to be sponsoring the Malta Classic, an event synonymous with charm and elegance. It fits ever-better with our own dedication to celebrating and providing the very best things in life” said General Manager David Woodward.
The annual event was founded in October 2007, when French entrepreneur and classic car enthusiast Thierry Giovannini organised Malta’s first Classic Car Grand Prix on the ring road of Valletta, bringing some of Europe’s finest classic cars to Malta to tour the island and race wheel to wheel on the Valletta circuit.
