Local Sport > Motor Sport > FINAL EVENT OF THE SEASON


Assocjazzjoni Sport Muturi u Karozzi will be holding the last event of the 2017/18 season before the summer break.

The Autocross section will hold the twelfth and last event of the 2017/2018 National ASMK Pasta Poiatti Championship and the event starts at 6.00pm.

This is another special event with the participation of Gozo drivers and includes the Vans Demolition Derby starting at 11.00pm.

The request to Association to organize again the Van Demolition dates back to the end of 2017.

For this event ASMK registered 13 drivers on van vehicles such as Toyota Liteace, Ford Transit, Tata Sierra, Fiat Ducati, Peugeot boxer, Tata Safari, Tata Delcia, Mercedes Vito among others.

The Association has already organized 2 meetings with the competitors registered and everything is set for next Saturday’s Demolition starting at 11.00pm while the Autocross starts at 6.00pm.

Tickets for both events are available at the door for €5, 00 for adults while accompanied children enter for free.

A look at the Autocross National Championship standings of the ASMK Pasta Poiatti 2017/2018 National Championship which is still completely undecided in the Modified and the Standard classes.

In the Modfied class we still are seeing the race for the title between Vince Farrugia on his Volkswagen Polo who currently tops the classification with 221 points and by Karl Micallef on a Ford Fiesta with 208 points.

Third place is shared between Jean Paul Grech on his Peugeot 106 and Noel Zammit on his Fiat Punto with 197 points each.

In the Standard Class there is still the race for the lead between the Citroen AX of Deane Farrugia and the Peugeot 106 of Nicovich Chircop.

Although Farrugia is currently suspended by the Disciplinary Board he has accumulated enough points and stands a good chance to win the title without competing in this last event.

This is adding pressure on Chircop as if he wins this Saturday race final he will be declared Class Winner for the first time. The present classification shows that Farrguia has 64 points to the 56 points of Chircop.

Meanwhile on Saturday 30th June 2018 the Association organized the last event of the ASMK National Trials Championship.

In Class A Damon Bonello on a Gas Gas motorcycle won again and was followed by Rowen Bonello on a Beta.

In Class B Isaac Scicluna on a Beta won this class followed by Dion Micallef on a Beta. Third place finisher was Karl Bartolo also on a Beta. In the Junior Class where children compete we saw Julian Scicluna win on an electric powered mini-Beta bike designed for young competitors.

Meanwhile following this event the Association honoured the National Trials Champions of 2017/2018 where again the championship winner in this class is Damon Bonello.

The Class B Champion and first time winner is Dion Micallef on a Beta. Micallef also won the Overall of his Class.

In the children category called Juniors Class, Julian Scicluna was declared Overall Winner while Jaden Abela finished as Runner Up.
