On Saturday, 8th October, timed drives determine the starting order of Sunday’s grid.

Besides thrilling races and a magnificent setting, new attractions at the 2016 Malta Classic promise to attract greater crowds than ever to this prestigious annual event. These include a retro entertainment stage, vintage food trucks, and a car park reserved for classic car owners. A new exhibition space in the Mdina Ditch will also offer entertainment and refreshment for spectators between races.
