During last event, only Silvio Sciberras on his Citroen AX No. 63 won all of the 3 pre-Final Heats. During the Final A race, Emm Muscat drove his Opel Corsa (60) to victory from start to finish. He was followed by Matthew Borg on a Nova but later in the laps, he lost his placing to Mario Scicluna and Karmel Zammit who were battling together for 2nd and 3rd place respectively while making it easier for Muscat to secure his lead. In the Fnal Laps, Zammit played an non-sporty move on Scicluna which forced the Referee to expel Zammit from the race.

In the Autocross Class B Final, Godwin Martin took the lead to the Finish during the 9 Lap race. Martin was closely followed by Josef Abela and Brian Azzopardi on his competitive Escort Mk1.
 
In the Bangers races, Tony Spiteri (90) won the 3 Race Heats of the day. Dennis Vassallo (9) won the 2nd highest points of the day and Philip Delia won 3rd overall on his Escort 2 litre No.55.
 
The Motocross Riders have run a non-Championship event and all Class A and Class B riders started the race on the same Starting Gate. Yet, the Final results were given separately for both Classes. Both the Start and the track were a remarkable scene. One could see motorbikes in all parts of the track with 19 riders on the start and with a 12 minute race Heats.

Because this event was organized to raise funds for the Community Chest Fund, the ASM committee also allocated a few minutes of Autocross / Motocross for Juniors. This Juniors Autocross & Motocross demonstration was held on this day, following training sessions by Autocross / Motocross aces and under strict rules and supervision. Many enjoyed these young lads on the AX / MX track to which, these young riders are very familiar too.
 
The last event held on the 19th of December 2010 also included a Car Demolition Derby. 27 cars made it to the start line which were divided into two (2) groups for a demonstration run. Then the Banging commenced as they were show the Start Flag. This Demolition which lasted an hour was won by Raffaello Gerald Bonello on a Mazda and Leo Butler on a Rover 2 Liter was Runner-up.
