On Sunday, we were invited to the ‘Classic Car Show and Demonstration’ in Puerto Banus. This event was arranged to enable drivers to understand the concept of this type of rally – the most famous being the Mille Miglia in Italy.
As you can see from the attached images, the cars were stunning and it really was a great event. Later this year, there will be a Marbella Classic Grand Prix in association with Marbella´s Town Hall and it will be an exclusive open road race known as a Regularity Rally. It will take place in Marbella in November – the exact dates will be released soon and we will of course let you know when we know.
Sonrisa Studios is a wonderful space created and run by the owner Sherry Midas. It is located right in the centre of Marbella, on the corner of the new underground car park in Calle Notario Luis Oliver.
Sherry says “We want to provide a theatre group offering plays throughout the year for different nationalities that include comedy and dance – review shows just like the ones we used to enjoy years ago.” Sherry has lots of other great ideas for the future, including dinner shows in local hotels with jazz and flamenco. She also wants to show short films and adult storytelling. A previous one was a sell out.
A Press Conference for the Marbella International Film Festival 2015 was held today at the Teatro Goya in Puerto Banús, Marbella. MarbellaAzul.com was of course there to bring you the news and images.
Festival director Mac Chakaveh told us the festival is dedicated to independent film makers around the world and currently attracts around 1,000 films from over 50 countries. This is the tenth year it has been held in Marbella and the festival’s reputation is growing.
The Travesia San Pedro de Alcántara open water swim race took place this year on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning in August from the Playa de la Salida in the centre of San Pedro. MarbellaAzul.com was there to bring you great images courtesy of photographer Derek Evans.
Competitors for the shorter 400 metre race assembled at 10.30 and the referee’s horn heralded the start of the race from the shore to the first buoy and back. The longer two lap 2,000 metre race started at 11.00 from the shore to a second buoy and back.
