The Valletta Grand Prix Foundation 2010 Event
From: 3/5/2010 To: 9/5/2010

The Valletta Grand Prix Foundation is organising its second Valletta Grand Prix Sprint and Demonstration Events to be held in Unesco’s World Heritage City of Valletta during the first week of May 2010. This annual historic classic car event is the only one of its kind staged entirely around Valletta’s ring road.
In 2009 the Valletta Grand Prix Foundation organised a 2-day Sprint Event of approximately 1 Km long. Within six weeks the Valletta Grand Prix Foundation was formed, board members elected and a defined date for its first event was set. It attracted 50 enthusiastic Maltese participants, plus a well known foreign guest driver and a foreign race director. The event was a complete success without any glitches or accidents to drivers and a spectacular for the viewing public. 
The VGPF has an exclusive agreement to run this Valletta historic classic car event for the next 4 years. With the support of the Valletta Local Council, Floriana Local Council, Malta Tourist Authority and Malta Sport Council, together with the support from other corporate sponsors, we are confident that the 2010 event will attract more drivers and spectators. 
The Valletta Grand Prix is an important element to Malta’s calendar of events and to fellow motoring enthusiasts. The event not only attracts local aficionados, but is a draw for more tourists to visit the island and it creates a new niche market associated with prestigious European Motor Sport activities. This year’s motoring event shall be attracting over 100 participants of whom some 40 will be foreigners. 
In addition to the Main Programme on Saturday 8th May and Sunday 9th May, the Valletta Grand Prix Foundation shall be organising a host of other activities that will incorporate various runs across Malta and Gozo, visiting historic sites and touristic venues. The climax to these activities will be the Concours D’Elegance to be held on Friday 7th May in Mdina, Malta’s Old Capital City. 
The tentative programme of events which will commence on the eve of Monday 3rd to Friday 7th May, 2010 is available from the Schedule section. 
The programme may alter slightly depending on circumstances beyond the organizers control nearer to the date, however such updates will be notified and communicated via email and through: http://www.vallettagrandprix.com/
