What we've been up to

Mdina Grand Prix 2014
Neil

Two second in class trophies will be returning to base after a fantastic run over 5 days in the beautiful ancient city of Mdina Malta. 

We decided to race 2 'stock' cars. The XK150s FHC returned to the competitive arena after a 10 year absense joined by the Sebring replica MGB GT V8. Neil put the XK through its oases a d Guy the V8.

The format of hill climb, sprint and then races broken up with a concours and finishing with a gala dinner was simply sensational.

Our cars were competitive as evidenced by fabulous Mdina glass trophies. The XK was not ideally suited to the twisty narrow street circuit but performed strongly attracting a lot of attention with some hairy moments under braking and outrageous power slides burning rubber for the 20,000 plus spectators believed to have attended the event

This event was probably the friendliest event I've ever attended. I'd highly recommend it for a holiday or the chance to compete in a relaxed competitive environment

Guy has attended all five of these events and presents a 'spirit of the GP' award which this year went to an awesome Alfa Spider. We also purchased a superb Alfa photo and presented it to the event organiser. 'many thanks Charles'.More photos and reports to follow. What a weekend!

    Hi guys. I would wholly endorse what you say about the M'Dina G.P. I was lucky enough to be on holiday and the hillclimb started right outside our hotel just as we finished breakfast. Managed to get out to see the cars and later drove up the hill too. Some lurid black lines on the open hairpins near the top.
    Malta is a top place for a holiday and from what I saw the people and the event are first class.
    Congratulations on your awards. They look FAB.
    Regards.
