Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Sep 15, 2015: Pit Lane, Mdina Grand Prix

Mdina Grand Prix

One of the highlights on the Maltese events calendar is the Mdina Grand Prix which takes place over 3 days in October. It consists of several group races on a 3 kilometer street circuit around the bastions of the ancient medieval capital of Mdina. Entrants come in from all parts of Europe and interest in the event increases every year.

For motor enthusiasts there are plenty of vintage and classic cars on show with models dating back as far as the 1920's and up to the 1960's. I have a passion for classic cars and have now been to 3 of these events and enjoy the time just admiring the beautiful machines on display and watching them tackle the short but difficult circuit.

This picture is of pit lane which is situated in the car park, which used to be an open and deep moat, underneath one of the bastions of Mdina.

I was having lunch in Mdina.

Our waiter was a boy about 8 years old.

He asked if I'd ever seen a train.

"Of course I have. Maybe 4 a day"

"When I save enough to leave Malta I want to see a train" he said.

Then he asked my Mother in Law if she was my sister.

She slipped him a few dollars.

He'll soon have enough - I thought - to see a train - even at 8.
