ASMK Motorsport raises €2406 for l-Istrina

 

The 20th edition of a Special Motorsport Day of events towards l-Istrina and the Malta Community Chest Fund was organized by Assocjazzjoni Sport Muturi u Karozzi ‘ASMK’ on Sunday 22nd December. The full day’s program included an Autocross Championship event, Motocross fun races and a car Demolition Derby.

 

The Autocross cars opened the day’s program of events where 33 Maltese and Gozo drivers registered in their respective classes. During the qualifying Heats Christian Galea showed his superiority over the rest by winning all the qualifying heats. The other drivers winning a post on the Class A start-line were Vince Farrugia on his VW Polo, Matthew Borg and Philip Vella both on Vauxhall Nova, Malcolm Borg on an  Opel Corsa and Melo Zammit on a Ford Escort.

 

Class B finalists were Josef Abela on a Vauxhall Nova, Kurt Sammut on a Ford Ka, Lennie Cortis on a Fiat Uno, Gordon Johnson on a Peugeot 205, Andrew Pisani on a Vauxhall Nova and Josef Grech fuq Ford Fiesta. The Class A and B Final races will be run on a later date which will be published on the media and ASM Facebook too as ASMK were bound to start the Demolition Derby by no later than 4.00pm.

 

Six cars competed in the Gozo Autocross Class where Domenic Zammit on his Alfa Sud followed by Marvin Grima on an Opel Corsa made a very good start in their Final race. Grima made pressure on Zammit when he passed him in the 3rd lap. Joseph Agius on a Fiesta held his position in 3rd place while Agius was warned for foul play earlier in the race. As they continued at a fast pace, it was Grima to reach the Finish Flag first followed by Zammit and Agius.

 

Twenty nine Motorcycling riders competed in three types of competitions like a Motocross Open for all Class, an Enduro only bike class and a Vintage bike class and Juniors who competed in one group. Kyle Camilleri riding an 85cc Suzuki RM was this class outright. Two Gozo riders Etienne Bigeni and Joseph Hili both on a Honda CR 85cc won 2nd and 3rd respectively.

 

Clayton Camilleri won the three Heats of the Open Class on a KTM SFX 250cc ahead of Paul Muscat on another KTM and younger Trever Muscat on a Honda CRF 250cc.

 

Edward Ciantar dominated his Enduro Class ahead of Matthew Gauci both riding a KTM EXC 300cc bike. At times Gauci offered challenge for the lead but Ciantar held his position throughout the race. Andres Cassar riding another KTM EXC-F 520cc won 3rd place Overall in this hard battled class.

 

At 4.00pm ASMK Officers made their last minute preparations to start the car Demolition Derby under the logo ‘Inhabbtuhom ghall l-Istrina’ 18 cars registered for this once a year Demolition Race as cars are very difficult to obtain due to the new scrapping system. The crowd filled every inch in front of the Grand Stand to watch the Parade Lap followed by banging of all kinds. Yet, the most keen drivers are experts in banging and stopping other cars while producing minimum damage to their own cars while hoping to win this battled race. This event together with the day long races managed to raise €2406. 00 for the Community Chestt Fund – Istrina.

 

This year’s Demolition edition was won by Larkin Butler on an old Hillman Hunter race which survived all the punishment on track which lasted 33 minutes.

Moreover, though the Association prized Leo Butler as Runner-up on his BMW, it was later noticed though filming that a breach of rules had taken place. Thus, ASMK will be revising this situation which might lead to a change in the final result.

 

ASMK informs the general public that the ASMK Pasta Poiatti Championship races commence on Sunday 12th January 2014. More information and photos are available on www.asmk.org.mt
