The Concours d’Elegance is held a day before the racing starts and is a very popular event during the Valletta Grand Prix. The classic cars are parked side by side in front of St.Paul’s Cathedral in Mdina. Here you get the chance to admire the craftsmanship and details on these cars. You get a chance to peep inside to inspect the leather seats, wooden dashboards and chrome knobs.
Quite a few owners dressed in period costumes, adding a touch of class to the event. In my case I shot the cars with an old film camera. One roll of 10 shots.
Hope you enjoy them!
