This October 6-9th, the Malta Classic welcomes enthusiasts, families and visitors to our island to discover the historic elegance and high performance of classics.
The Malta Classic is a four-day event comprising three exhilarating events: the Malta Classic Hill Climb by Thomas Smith, the Malta Classic Concours d’Elegance by Mdina Glass, and the Malta Classic Grand Prix by Chopard. Over 70 pre-1976 cars will participate in the 2016 Malta Classic, with participants from international locales such as Italy, the UK, France and Switzerland.
The Malta Classic has its origins in October 2007, when French entrepreneur and classic car enthusiast Thierry Giovannini organised Malta’s first ever 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. In April 2009 enthusiasts brought together by this event set up the Valletta Grand Prix Foundation to carry on what Giovannini had started. In 2011 the Malta Classic was transferred to its current home in Mdina, where it celebrates vintage style and speed against an historic backdrop.
