The Gozo Motorcross Association organised on Sunday its first FunRace of the season at Ta’ Xħajma Motocross Track.

Class C welcomed Jurgen Attard who did quite well as a new rider. In fact , Attard came in third place. This class was won by Steve Cassar on his Suzuki RM 125cc He was followed by Anthony Fenech on a KTM 85cc.

In Class B Glenn Vella achieved the largest amount of points placing him in first place. He was followed by new comer Daniel Portelli. Keith Bugeja came in third place.

Class A had the very top riders participating with 80cc and 125cc bikes. One could notice that the powerful sound of these bikes is synonymous with the 2-stroke engines.

The race turned out to be interesting and added fun to the whole activity as Gozitan Champions Etienne Bigeni and Steve Xuereb rode their hearts out on the track with their low cc bikes but with the best of sounds.

Bigeni won this category followed by Glenn Vella. Young Isaac Bartolo who is also a new rider in the GMA season, managed to place third.

This event was supported by Ravenol Oil Lubricant at Galea General Services in Gozo. Winners where given trophies and Ravenol products for their achievments.
