Gozo Motocross Championship Round 4

Tuesday, January 14, 2020, 12:11

The Gozo Motorcross Association organised its fourth round of the championship 2020 at Ta’ Xħajma Track. Races started at 1pm.

Following a five minute downpour that started at exactly 1pm, the conditions of the track changed instantly. Muddy races started at 1-30pm and the riders had a tough time navigating their bikes due to the muddy and slippery state of certain parts of the track.

Nevertheless, our brave riders plunged through Heat 1 with great courage. As the races progressed throughout the day, the conditions of the track became more manageable.

The only rider in Class A was Steve Xuereb while in Class B, Robert Spiteri came in third following Daniel Portelli in 2nd place. Jorn Stellini achieved first place as he had the largest amount of points.

Isaac Bartolo won Class C. He was followed by Silvan Caruana who came in second place. Meanwhile in class D, young Mark Camilleri and Luke Caruana opted out of heat 1. Jurgen Attard achieved maximum points and came in first, followed by Steve Cassar in second place. Veteran Scott Donovan decided to join the class today and he also managed to place third.

Wenzu Mercieca, director of Mezzan Garage handed trophies to each winner.
