The Gozo Motocross Association’s Fun Race

Thursday, January 10, 2019, 8:05

Last Sunday, the Gozo Motorcross Association organised its first Fun Race of the season, at Ta’ Xħajma Motocross Track, with races starting at 1 pm.

A rider reshuffle took place in all of the classes.

Class C welcomed Jurgen Attard who did quite well as a new rider and came third. This class was won by Steve Cassar on his Suzuki RM 125cc. He was followed by Anthony Fenech on a KTM 85cc.

In Class B Glenn Vella achieved the largest amount of points placing him in first place. He was  followed by new comer Daniel Portelli. Keith Bugeja came in third place.

Class A was made up of the very top riders, participating with 80cc and 125cc bikes. One could notice that the powerful sound of these bikes was synonymous with the 2-stroke engines. The race turned out to be interesting and added fun to the whole activity as Gozitan Champions Etienne Bigeni and Steve Xuereb rode their hearts out on the track with their low cc bikes but with the best of sounds. Bigeni won this category followed by Glenn Vella. Young Isaac Bartolo who was also a new rider in the GMA season, managed to place third.

This event was supported by Ravenol Oil Lubricant at Galea General Services in Gozo. Winners where given trophies and Ravenol products for their achievments.

Meanwhile, round 4 of the Yamaha Gozo Motocross Championship 2019 will take place on Sunday 20th January 2019.
