Around 40 classic vehicles are expected to turn out for Manilva’s III Classic Car Rally.

These venerable motors will muster at the Castle in Castillo de la Duquesa at approximately 10.30 am after which they will drive up to Manilva where they will stop in Manilva’s main street, Calle Mar at 11.30 pm.

Following a tapa in one of the local hostelries they will then drive down to Sabinillas for a procession around the town before setting off to Puerto de la Duquesa where they will park up around the harbour and in Ros y Falcon’s car park whilst the owners nip off for a spot of lunch at 2 – 2-30 pm.
