Saturday, September 22, 2012, 7:00

On Monday 17th September ASM Officers and Championship winners of Ta Qali Autocross and Motocross National Championships paid a courtesy visit to H.E. Dr George Abela President of Malta at the San Anton Palace in Attard.  A Donation obo the Malta Community Chest Fund was presented to H.E. Abela during the visit.


Christian Mark Galea and Matthew Borg Champions of Class A and Class B Autocross respectively together with the youngest Motocross rider Kyle Camilleri were also present. These drivers were accompanied by ASM President Mr. Frans Deguara, ASM Secretary General Mr. Johann Pace, Treasurer Mr. Edgar Xuereb and Assistant Secretary Mr. Francis J. Azzopardi.


His Excellency showed great interest in the motorsport events organised by ASM and invited the Association to participate in special events during this year’s edition of PaqPaqli ghal-Istrina.

Mr. Deguara invited His Excellency to attend the 19th Special Event at Ta Qali by ASM organised to raise funds in favour of the Malta Community Chest Fund where Special Autocross, Motocross, Trials, Quadbike races are organised including the Special Grand Demolition Derby. This event is scheduled on 23rd December 2012.


The invitation was warmly welcomed by Dr Abela who also personally thanked ASM and its members for the cooperation and assistance during many fund raising events organised at MFCC in favour of MCCF.


It is important to note that presently, the ASM race tracks are being refurbished in preparation of the coming ASM National Championships. Extensive works are being carried out especially on the Motocross tracks to bring them in line as much as possible to the UEM European standards.

Most modifications approved by the Executive Committee are carried out under the guidance of Frans Deguara who is assisted by Johann Pace, Clayton Camilleri and John Micallef. These works are made possible with the use of heavy plant machinery provided by the Ministry of Resources and Rural Affairs and Messrs Vella of Central Asphalt Ltd. through the intervention of the Projects Officer Mr Lawrence Darmanin. Many thanks to all for your support.


The Tracks works repairs are expected to be finish soon and the drivers will hopefully be able to commence their training sessions by next Saturday 29th September. The ASM 2012-2013 National Championships are scheduled to commence on the 7th October 2012.
