The Gozo Motorcross Association organised its fourth round of the championship 2016/17 at Ta’ Xħajma Track. Races started at 1pm.

Gozitan and Maltese riders came together to provide the most challenging and determined races of the season. In Class A, brothers, Clayton and Kyle Camilleri raced against Mario Cauchi, Steve Xuereb, Robert Spiteri and Etienne Bigeni. All of the riders put on an incredible show of motocross racing. Xuereb dominated the day as he acquired maximum points winning first place in three heats. Camilleri followed closely while Bigeni and Cauchi came head to head with the same amount of points. Nevertheless Cauchi won third place.

Class B was just as challenging with Nataniel Camilleri and Keith Bugeja on Yamaha YZ 250cc and Yamaha YZF 250cc respectively, both striving hard to win first place. In fact Bugeja ended up first while Camilleri followed closely. Following a short break, Godfrey Bigeni returned to motocross racing in class B and ended up in third place.

In Class C, Joseph Luke Gauci returned once again in a bid to win over Anthony Fenech who came in second. Mark Camilleri had a rough day while the young Matthew Spiteri showed great determination in his bid to place well. Raymond Caruana managed to come in third place. Frank Xuereb joined this category on a KTM SX 144cc, following a twelve years absence as a competing rider.

Gozo Motocross Association  announces that the next event will be a FunRace with a Carnival theme, filled with several interesting conponents. Classes A, B and C will incorporate a rider-shuffle followed by a special 125cc ONLY race. Another addition to the day will be a beginners’ race that welcomes children and adoloscents.

This activity will take place on Sunday 26th February 2017 at Ta’ Xħajma motocross track. Races will start at 11 in the morning.
