The XVI edition of the Mallorca Classic Rally will be held in the island from 12th to 14th March; an event considered to be one of the world's highest level of historic automobile races because it has the best sections in the world, such as the 12-kilometre descent of the Sa Calobra road, which has a 360-degree curve.
The section consists of curves linked to right and left, a dozen of them 180 degrees in horseshoe and one that has its own name, Tie Knot, with a 360-degree turn in which the road passes below itself forming a tie.
This stage limits all riders to the controls of their classic jewels for the enjoyment of fans and motor lovers.
The Mallroca Classic Rally is an event that for the last 15 years has been taking place the 2nd weekend of March on this privileged island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Rally drivers from all over Europe take part every year in this rally, with more than 90% repeating pilots year after year.
Nowadays it has managed to position itself among the best sporting events of the year that are held in Mallorca. This shows that not only is it an engine competition but also a great social event, where local and resident participants from different nationalities of the world mix.
TaPalma is the tapas & cocktails route in Palma, and this year it will be held from November 25 to 29. In addition, on November 23, two days before the gastronomic route, TaPalma will celebrate the tapas contest at the Palau de Congressos de Palma, for the third year.
Bureau Veritas, a market leader in inspection, certification and testing, has completed the certification of the Meliá Hotels International “Stay Safe with Meliá” programme of preventative measures to combat COVID-19 and has also confirmed a level of compliance of 100% in company hotels.
The spread of the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to reduce the pressure on the public health system in the Balearic Islands led to the Meliá Palma Bay Hotel and Palma Convention Centre being converted into hospitals in late March under the management of the Son Llàtzer University Hospital.
