ASMK Wotomoto Enduro in Ta’ Qali

Wednesday, November 7, 2018, 8:06

The WotoMoto Enduro Championship 2018/2019  is set to start the coming Sunday at the ASMK Sport Complex at Ta’ Qali. Once again this national championship will be spread over six events where five races will be held in Malta and one in Gozo. This season is being well supported again by several quarry owners in Malta and Gozo who allow their quarry to be turned into a Moto Enduro race location. However, as it’s common practice the first event will be held at the ASMK Sports Complex in Ta’ Qali as from 10:00am.

For the second consecutive season BETA with the firm Wotomoto Company Ltd confirmed to be the major sponsor. The first event consists of an Enduro race against the clock for all competitors present, along a special route formed at the ASMK Complex. The competitors will start at one minute intervals and lap times will be controlled electronically.

The winner of the event in addition to the trophy will also take home a brand new BETA RR 300cc 2T motorcycle which will be presented to the winner by the WotoMoto Malta Ltd. representative. This motorcycle is given to the winner of the day to keep for a whole year and to participate in all the season’s events including all the training sessions needed as preparation for each event.

This season a new rule will be effected in the way how to issue the championship final result, as during last season two competitors finished with exactly the same score. The Enduro Committee is taking new measures to prevent such a situation to occur again. For this season the result will not be issued on ‘the best time from two laps’ but is being issued as per the international system where the winner of the day is the one who registers the lowest lap yime from the total of the two heats of the same event. So it will be very difficult to have parity once again.

Meanwhile last Sunday ASMK planned to start the Autocross Season but the first event of the ASMK Pasta Poiatti National Autocross Championship 2018/2019 had to be postponed. The race cancellation was decided early Sunday morning due to the rain downpour during Saturday night. The Autocross Committee announced that this event will be held on Sunday 18th November 2018 and starts at 10.00am.
