In the wake of the COVID-19 world pandemic, the Valletta Grand Prix Foundation regrets to announce that the 2020 edition of the Classic Car event taking place between 8 and 11 October has been cancelled. Malta Classic is a staple and national event involving months of intricate timescale logistical planning and dependent on volunteers, sponsors, partners as well as travel arrangements for its overseas drivers. 2020 will be the first year the annual event will not be taking place since 2008.

"Attracting thousands of vintage car racing enthusiasts each year, the Malta Classic committee has ensured 12 seamless annual events with the health and safety of drivers and its patrons at the core of its operations and continues to do so with this decision. While the effects and aftermath of the COVID-19 virus has called for the cancellation of this year's edition, our committee members, volunteers and third parties are working on the most thrilling edition yet for its drivers, patrons and spectators alike for Malta Classic 2021," said Karen Zammit Southernwood, secretary for Malta Classic.

Malta Classic announced that the 2021 four-day national event is scheduled to be back on the road between 7 and 10 October. An exclusive Ferrari Dino 206SP has been confirmed for the edition among other sought after classic cars to be announced in the run-up to 2021.
