Two of Malta’s ‘classics’ – the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa and the Mdina Grand Prix – have joined forces once again, in a successful sponsorship that is now in its fourth edition.
Following on from 2014, 2015 and 2016, the Corinthia Palace is proud to be sponsoring the event once again – and this will involve welcoming the Mdina Grand Prix team to the hotel for a number of activities including its press conference and final-night gala dinner, as well as receiving classic-car drivers from across the world.
“Back in 2014 we felt that this hotel would be a perfect fit as a destination to link to this event,” says general manager David Woodward. “A classic property that dates back to the 60s, welcoming classic cars from the 60s and beyond – what match could be better? Today we feel exactly the same and are thrilled with the way the Mdina Grand Prix has continued to evolve thanks to the outstanding organisation and resolute determination of the team behind it.”
Equally, the Mdina Grand Prix team believes that the Corinthia Palace is also an unparalleled destination for its activities – both before and during the week-long event. “The Corinthia Palace is a location that perfectly matches the style and elegance of the Mdina Grand Prix – from its architecture to its décor, and to the impeccable service that we always receive. We are very much looking forward to continuing our relationship with the team at the hotel, and to enjoying their hospitality once again.”
This year’s Malta Classic will run from 5-8 October and will welcome thousands of classic car enthusiasts to its range of activities, including the Malta Classic Hill Climb, the Malta Classic Concours d’Elegance, and the Malta Classic Grand Prix.
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.
