Valletta Concours D’Elegance

Where Art Meets Art

 

Born out of the love for all things vintage and classic cars, Valletta Concours D’Elegance is making its third appearance on the Maltese Islands in the capital city of Valletta.

 

Mr John Saliba, the organiser of Valletta Concours D’Elegance, worked very hard to have this event in the capital. ‘I believe that Valletta deserves the very best. Even though I am not originally from Valletta, our capital city has always had a special place in my heart. Its baroque architecture serves as a magnificent backdrop for classic cars. It’s the perfect situation where art meets art’.

Car Collection Show

Valletta Concours D’Elegance gives local and international classical car enthusiasts the opportunity to showcase their passion to the world. A team of foreign judges, who are experienced in judging similar international events, have been commissioned to share their expertise in the judging process. However, this is not simply a showcase of classic cars but also a competition. There will be various categories of vehicles and the judges will decide according to a predetermined set of criteria. Apart from the competition, there will also be a photographic exhibition, happening from the 1st to the 9th of June, and a period costume competition, happening on the day of the event, on the 9th of June.

Mr Saliba claims that this event is not simply to promote classical cars but also to promote Valletta and Malta in general. ‘We want to attract tourists to come to Malta and get to know our culture and history. We have so much to offer and, by organising this professional event, I want to create an awareness of that’.

 

The Concours will also exhibit a Mini Minor Category and an exhibition of various models of minis throughout the years to commemorate the 60 years of Mini Minor.
