He said that the Federation had worked with the government and within the parameters given, to present a project that in his words would benefit everyone.

He concluded by thanking Prime Minister Abela, Parliamentary Secretary for Sport Clifton Grima and the rest of the government for their cooperation to make this wish of thousands of car enthusiasts a reality.
