One was the motorcycling Enduro race held last April and this event for Cars held on Sunday 20th September.

Work on the Autocross temporary racetrack in Sannat lasted a week. ASMK brought over the necessary machinery from Malta together with works performed by Government Gozo Ministry Workers, Gozo contractors supporting this event and ASMK Officials. The works were well organised [...]
