Next weekend the Federazzjoni Maltija Vetturi Antiki (FMVA) will once again be organising the Mgarr to Mgarr Vintage Motors Festival 2017 – its annual two-tier event for vintage, classic and military vehicles, consisting of a regularity run in Gozo and three rotating static shows in Gozo
The Malta leg of this event will start on Saturday at 2.00pm in Mgarr, have a half-way halt in Wied iz-Zurrieq and will finish by the Selmun Palace in Mellieha at about 4.00pm.
The Gozo part of the Festival gets underway on Sunday 12th March, with the Regularity Run, starting at around 9.00am, when the vehicles will start gathering at the Marsalforn car park. The first vehicle on the Regularity Run will leave the start at 10:01.
The half way break will be located at Dwejra upper car park whilst the finish will be located at the Mgarr Harbour car park, situated at the end of the road past the Porto Vecchio restaurant. The first vehicle is due to arrive at Mgarr at about 12.00 noon.
The rotating shows of the vehicles will run from 9:00am to 3.30pm in the villages of Xaghra, Qala or Ghajnsielem. The show participants will rotate from one venue to another so it will be easy to admire the collection of vehicles at any of the above-mentioned villages.
The vehicles at the rotating shows will be joined by the Regularity Run participants once they have reached the Finish in Mgarr.
Members of the public are invited to see a wide range of beautiful classic and vintage machines dating from around the 1920s to the late 1970s, on Saturday and Sunday, the 11th and 12th of March.
This event will be the 9th of its kind and is being supported by the Ministry for Gozo and various Local Councils in both Malta and Gozo.
