The ‘Assocjazzjoni Sport Muturi u Karozzi’ (ASMK) is to continue the motorsport activities on Sunday 15 November 2015 when the Enduro Motorcycles will be riding their second event of the ASMK Pasta Poiatti 2015/2016 National Championship. This will be held at Hal Far close to the Play Mobil factory. Registration starts at 9.00am while the event starts at 10: 00am.
Meanwhile on Sunday 8th November the Association held the 2nd event of the Autocross Championships at the Sports Complex at Ta’ Qali. In this event the participating competitors were divided in the two classes that for the Autocross Modified and for the Standard Class.
During the day the Modified Autocross drivers demonstrated strong competition during the three Heat so much so that on this day nobody managed to win the all the three qualifying Heats. Christian Mark Galea on his Fiat Ritmo won the highest points score of the day and automatically secured his place on the Start-line for the Class A. Philip Joe Vella and Malcolm Borg both on an Opel Corsa, Kieth Borg on a Vauxhall Nova, Christian Apap on Ford Fiesta and Josef Abela on another Nova secured their places on the Class A grid.
At the Start signal Vella and Galea accelerated hard to the first Right Hand bend but shortly during this first corner Galea did a small mistake which costed him three places back. The race final continued with Vella taking the lead followed by Borg and Abela. Yet the focus was on Galea who now was in fifth place. Galea first started adding pressure on Apap until the latter withdrew due to mechanical damage. Galea who now advanced one place started making pressure on Abela who defended his place as best as he could. But just before the end of the Finish Line Galea took an overtaking move and won on Abela just before the Finish Line. The Finish Flag was dropped on Vella by concluding the nine (9) Laps first. Borg, Galea and Abela followed in 2nd, 3rd and 4th places respectively.
Class B finalist were Joseph Micallef on his Opel Corsa, Noel Zammit on a Fiat Punto, JeanPaul Grech on a Peugeot 106, Jonathan Vella on Ford Fiesta and Jonathan Camilleri on an Opel Corsa.
From the Start of this Race Final Vella and Zammit were seen to take the lead at the first corner. Vella took the helm of the race followed close by Zammit and Micallef. They drove their cars with extreme perfection and close driving. Yet Zammit was seen making pressure on Vella while in the same time Micallef was making pressure on Zammit. On the Third Lap both Zammit and Micallef passed Vella and the race stayed like this for many more Laps. But in the last bend which is a few meters before the Finish Line Micallef caught the inner tire barrier on the roadside and had to withdraw from the race due to a suspension damage. Meanwhile the race ended a few seconds later this accident of Micallef where Zammit won his first time Class B win followed by Vella and Grech.
In the Standard Class we again saw Deane Farrugia driving his Citroen AX and dominate the Race Final. Farrugia also won this second event ahead of Traydon Bailey on a Ford Ka. During this & Laps Final Race Ian Fenech finished in third place on another Citroen AX. Fourth and Fifth places were won by Gozo drivers Joseph Vella on Ford Fiesta and new entrant Johann Vella on an Opel Corsa.
