On Sunday 18th December 2016 the “Assocjazzjoni Sport Muturi u Karozzi” will be organizing a special event held annually during the Christmas period. Like in previous years this event is held to raise funds for L-Istrina. In this ASMK 23rd edition of such an event the program is to include the first races of the Autocross and Motocross of the ASMK Pasta Poiatti 2016/2017 National Championships. The day’s program begins as early as 10:00 am and is planned to end with the Car Demolition Derby starting at 3: 30pm.

Though the Demolition competitors are finding it very difficult to buy old cars for this ‘Once in a Year’ event, fourteen competitors have registered for this competition. Most of these drivers are repeaters in this game so it is difficult to forecast a Winner and his Runner-Up. Though car smashing is the role of this game yet there are special Safety Rules to prevent driver injury. Such preventive rules are to be observed by all drivers during and to the end of the Demolition Derby. In the meantime, the Association takes all safety measures to prevent injury to the drivers.

Meanwhile, today Tuesday 13th December 2016 the Trials section within ASMK started the National Trials Championship. Despite being a small section within the ASMK, ten competitors registered for this event while being divided into two classes. Among the expert competitors Antonio Leonardi a former Sicily champion in this sport competed in this Expert Class. This event was held at the tal-Ballut hard-rock quarry at San Pawl tat-Targa.

In Class A the competitors had six sections to combat against. Yet Damon Bonello on a Gas Gas motorcycle made a good start and was followed by Rowen Bonello on a Beta and Antonio Leonardi on a Gas Gas motorcycle. The fight between these two competitors eased in the fifth section when Rowen Bonello gained some penalty points thus easing the pressure for Leonardi who now was runner-up to Danon. Leonardi advanced to 2nd place to the final result leaving Damon Bonello win his first event of this new 2016-2017 championship in Class A. Leonardi won second place while Damon Bonello had to be content with third place.

In Class B real competition was generated between four competitors mainly between Tony Curmi and Daniel Inguanez both on a Beta motorcycles and between Manuel Camilleri on his Gas Gas and the Sherco of Dennis Grech. Throughout the day’s event the four competitors remained always close to each other with Camilleri and Curmi as leaders while Inguanez and Grech followed. The last section in the day’s whole completion was decisive as to who will win this class and add the maximum points in the final result. The event finished with Curmi winning this class followed by Camilleri and Inguanez in second and the third places respectively.

Meanwhile the Association ASMK published the Calendar of Events for the Autocross, the Motocross, the Trials and the Enduro Championship races with the dates throughout the year 2017.
