Daqstant, l-ASMK tappezza kull ghajnuna ghall gid tal-membri tahha.

Illum, bi pjacir inhabbru Ufficjalment li id-ditta Gasan-Zammit (importaturi tal-muturi Honda) gharfu il-mod tat-tmexxija professjonali tal-ASMK u l-potenzjal tal-membri taghna li biex jibqghu kompetittivi fli sport partikolament fil-Motocross qed jinvestu f’muturi ta’ l-ahhar teknologija.
