Malta’s classic GP to run again

| 7 Sep 2011

The Mediterranean island of Malta is to host another classic GP, following the postponement of the country's third annual Valletta GP earlier this year.The 2011 running of the event will take place in the nearby city of Mdina on 22 and 23rd October as the re-branded 2011 Mdina Grand Prix - in place of the Valletta-based event which was postponed owing to unforseen roadworks in the Maltese capital.Boasting the same format – one day of timed sprints, followed by a demonstration-only Grand Prix – as the previous Valletta GPs, the 2011 will take place on a 2.3km road circuit around the old city.The event is being run by the Valletta Grand Prix Association, in collaboration with local authorities and the Malta Tourist Authority and the circuit will run alongside sections of the ancient city walls, taking in some spectacular scenery. Entry is limited to 100 pre-1976 cars and costs €280 per car. Contact Josef Abela (+356 99477735; josef.abela@vallettagp.com) for more or see: www.vallettagrandprix.com for more.
