The Valletta Grand Prix Foundation regretfully announces the cancellation of the thirteenth edition of the Mdina Grand Prix. This decision has been taken following discussions with all authorities involved including the local councils, the Police Force, Transport Malta and others. While the committee welcomes the discussions which have taken place, it has become evident that performing all the necessary works and requested arrangements in time, particularly the logistical arrangements required for foreign participants is not going to be possible.
The Malta Classic is not just a motorsport event for classic car enthusiasts. It is an experience for even those who do not have classic car racing at heart. It encompasses the beauty of Malta, the experience of being present in a racing paddock, the possibility of admiring unique classic cars, and of course the actual Grand Prix itself.
As the Malta Classic organising team we pride ourselves on placing Malta on the map as a destination for car enthusiasts and tourists alike. Through the organisation of such an event, we often feature Malta on foreign publications, with a number of motoring and lifestyle journalists attending this event and reporting , thus placing Malta as a destination during the month of October.
The Malta Classic committee is now looking forward to commence preparations to ensure that the 2023 edition is organised with the full collaboration of the local councils involved, Transport Malta and the Malta Police Force. This will ensure that all required permits are issued as soon as possible in order to avoid a repeat of this year’s scenario.
The organisers would like to thank all the authorities who in any way assisted in finding solutions to the issues which have arisen this year. The Valletta Grand Prix Foundation will be issuing another communication confirming next year’s edition of the Malta Classic in the very near future.
