Island car club visiting Xagħra in Gozo

Friday, May 28, 2010, 17:55

After the 3rd round of the Island Car Club 2010 Hillclimb Championship held last month at Ta Penellu hill Mellieha, the 4th round will take us for a weekend in Gozo where we will stage the next event at Xaghra hill on Sunday just before our summer break.

We are expecting a larger number of cars for this event and the attendance is always growing with quite a few participants from our sister Island and a number of cars who had some misfortunes in the first three events returning for the challenge.

The route for this event starts from a side road mid way down Xaghra hill towards the 1st chicane, leading to the roundabout at the bottom, returning back up the hill throught the chicane to the fast left hander followed by a sharp 180 degree right hand corner to the finish.

The event is planned to start at 8.30am and the Island Car Club committee who were again involved in the running of the Valletta Gran Prix 2010 would like to thank the public for itsgrowing support & co-operation. Thanks also to the local councils and police in all the localities where these events are held which wouldn’t be possible without their intervention.
