Thursday 10th October: Malta Classic Hill Climb

The Malta Classic 2019 weekend will kick off on 10th October with the Malta Classic Hill Climb. In this traditional form of motor racing, audiences will see a collection of vintage cars racing against the clock to the top of Imtahleb Hill, near the town of Rabat. The meeting point for the hill climb is Migra l-Ferha in Rabat, a location that boasts breath-taking sea views. While there is no direct bus route to this area, taxi services such as Prestige Cabs can take you there.


This year, the event will also exhibit a Mini Minor Category commemorating 60 years of Mini Minor. The exhibition will portray various models of minis throughout the years.

Friday 11th October: Mdina Concours d’Elegance

Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October: Malta Classic Grand Prix

The following day, on the 12th October, the Malta Classic Grand Prix will unfold outside the fortified city of Mdina. The classic cars will be put to the test in a tricky racing circuit, consisting of vineyards and terraced hills. Drives will be times in order to determine the starting order for the next day’s grid.

The real race will be held on Sunday 14th October, with packs of eight to 10 classic cars racing to the finish line. The Malta Classic Grand Prix will end with an awards ceremony for the drivers’ skilful racing and their cars’ performance.
