The official launch of the Mdina Grand Prix, the annual, week-long classic car event, was held recently at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa in Attard, which is one of the main sponsors of the Mdina Grand Prix
To celebrate this launch, the hotel hosted a press conference within its landscaped gardens for journalists and invited guests.
“With less than a month to go until the Grand Prix kicks off, the hotel is now in full swing to support it,” says Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa General Manager, David Woodward.
“This event has an outstanding aura to it and its classic style blends beautifully with the historic atmosphere of the hotel. It was great fun to watch the stream of classic cars drive into our grounds for the press conference. We will be thrilled to welcome their owners, as well as the many Mdina Grand Prix enthusiasts to the hotel over the next few weeks.”
The guests to the press conference enjoyed a breakfast of prosecco and themed canapés crafted by Executive Chef, Stefan Hogan and his team. There were also mini Battenberg cakes which perfectly matched the famous grand prix’s checkered flag.
A beautiful exhibition of Mdina Grand Prix-related photography by David Pisani has been set up in the lobby of the Corinthia Palace, really enveloping the hotel in the excitement of the races to come. The exhibition is supported by Picture House.
“We have gone to great lengths to support this event because we believe it really focuses attention on many of Malta’s best features, namely the island’s history, the beautiful walled city of Mdina, and the passion of the Maltese people. The Mdina Grand Prix certainly promises to be a highlight of our hotel’s busy on-going social calendar and we look forward to sharing it with our esteemed guests,” says Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa General Manager, David Woodward.
The Mdina Grand Prix will take place from 9th – 12th October 2014.
