On Sunday 24th April 2016 Assocjazzjoni Sport Muturi u Karozzi is to continue the National Championships sponsored by ASMK and Pasta Poiatti 2015/2016. The Autocross cars will be racing their Ninth event and Motocross is also organized on the day. The Program begins at noon (12:00 pm).

Meanwhile a slight look at the Autocross and Motocross classifications show that in Autocross Modified class Christian Mark Galea on a Fiat Ritmo still tops the chart and is expected to continue defending his lead with the 161 points won so far. Galea is followed by Malcolm Borg on an Opel Corsa with 112 points. In the Autocross Standard class we see Deane Farrugia on his Citroen AX to continue to lead this classification with 45 points followed by Traydon Bailey on his Ford Ka with 36 points.

In the Motocross Class A Clayton Camilleri on his KTM is still leading the classification and is expected to continue leading with 208 points while his brother Kyle is 2nd placed with 172 points also on a KTM motorcycle. In Class B the Gozo Riders are still defending the first two positions in the ranking. Mario Cauchi on a Honda is leading with 207 points and is followed by Etienne Bigeni in 2nd place with 197 points on Honda motorcycle.

Meanwhile the Board of Disciplinary Action of the Association met this week and decided on two cases of misconduct by the competitors. In the Autocross section Johann Vella will be suspended from the next event on Sunday following misconduct in his last activity. From the Motocross section Clayton Camilleri and Paul Muscat are also suspended from the next activity on next Sunday following improper behaviour by their spectators on site.

Meanwhile on Sunday 17th April the Association organized another event of the Trials National Championship sponsored by ASMK and Pasta Poiatti which was held at the quarry at Wied Ghomor in the limits of Naxxar. This was possible by kind permission of the quarry owners Ballut Blocks Ltd. This site is an excellent place for these Trials competitions.

During the day’s competition a number of Trials competitors took part in Six Sections laid by professional Trials bikers. The competitors were divided into two classes. In Class A we saw Riders of experience competing again yet Damon Bonello on a Gas Gas motorcycle dominated the day’s event though he was suffering pain in a knee. Damon managed to gain only 3 penalty points in the last two sections from six in the competition and have completed the day in first place followed by Rowen Bonello on Beta who closed the day with 13 point of penalty. Gary Debono on a Sherco placed 3rd overall in Class A with 21 points of penalty.

In Class B we saw great competition between Bernard Sammut on Beta and Manuel Camilleri on a Gas Gas during the six sections. Sammut was seen taking advantage but Camilleri responded well to this pressure and soon closed the gap between the two. This continued almost to the end when Camilleri gained some penalty points in section No.4. This resulted in Sammut winning the Class B on the day by only 9 penalty Camilleri points to Camilleri’s 11 penalty point and rating in 2nd place. Third place was won by Ian Scicluna on a Beta with 17 points of penalty.

The Administration of the Association will be announcing changes to the sporting calendar during next May and June stating that a number of activities will be taking place from late in the afternoon until late at night. The cars track will be lit with artificial light and creating a comfortable atmosphere. These measures are being taken because of the high temperatures we will be having during that time.
