Gibraltar saw over 100 classic cars taking part in what proved to be one of the biggest car rallies ever with the various associations all coming together.

The Gibraltar International Classic and Vintage Car Rally the event attracted cars from UK, France, Spain, Morocco and Germany.

From Gibraltar alone there were some 50 to 60 cars. GCVA joined forces with the Maroc-Atlas 4X4 Club and the Gibraltar Amateur Racing Club to celebrate World Heritage Motoring Year.

“It has been quite a successful day and we need more space,” President of the association Howard Danino said on Saturday confident that the rally could attract more entries in future.
