A reception will follow at the Pjazza Tal-Parocca, Mellieha where the winners will be presented with their prizes.

Mr. Joe Gerada, Thomas Smith Group Managing Director, and a participant himself, said “Our association with the Mdina Grand Prix is a source of great pride for us at Thomas Smith Group. The event has become annual appointment in the national calendar and an incredible opportunity for the island to showcase some of its most breath-taking sites, while bringing local and international classic car enthusiasts and spectators together, is significant.”
