This year’s edition of the historic Mdina Grand Prix has been cancelled due to logistical issues, the Valletta Grand Prix Foundation have announced.
The Mdina Grand Prix is one of the most iconic motorsport events Malta has to offer. As said in the statement made by Classic Malta “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.”
In a statement they go on to say that this decision was after discussions with all authorities involved including the local councils, the Police Force, Transport Malta and others.
The foundation also states that “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.”
However they later on go on to confirm that “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.”
