Next Saturday 18th June 2016 Assocjazzjoni Sport Muturi u Karozzi will be holding the last program of the 2015/2016 ASMK Pasta Poiatti Championships Season. During this special evening the Association will launch the day’s program from 4: 30pm. This special event is to include two sections for motorcycle sport which are the Motocross and Trials events. Later in the program from 7: 30pm the Autocross cars will start their racing and continue until late at night.
During the last event of two weeks ago the Motocross Championship came to an end. During this next event they will be performing again on friendly basis. Yet, next Saturday the ASMK Pasta Poiatti Championships for the three Autocross Cars classes and also for the two Trials classes will be coming to an end.
An overview of the situation in Autocross we see that in the Modified category Christian Galea Mark on his Fiat Ritmo will be confirmed again as champion yet another time. It is expected that Malcolm Borg on an Opel Corsa will win the Runner-Up placing in the National Championship. The same cannot be said for the 3rd placed championship winner of the year as Gordon Johnson and Joseph Micallef both on an Opel Corsa are very close to each with regards to the points result for this position. Josef Abela on a Nova and Josef Grech on a Ford Fiesta also stand a chance for 3rd place.
In Autocross Standard Championship class the situation is somewhat yet unconfirmed too. Deane Farrugia on a Citroen AX is still leading the classification by a marginal lead. During the last event he lost the chance of securing his championship win as he was suspended from the race following an anti-sporting action during his third Heat of the day. Although Farrugia still heads the points scale he still holds an advantage over second placed Ian Fenech on Citroen AX and third placed Traydon Bailey on a Ford Ka.
In the Trials National Championship everything indicates that Damon Bonello on Gas Gas is expected to win yet another Class A Championship title in the sport of Trials motorcycling. Damon is followed by Rowen Bonello on Beta who again is in duel with Joseph Scicluna on a Gas Gas motorcycle for second place in this classification. In Class B everything is uncertain who will win this classification. Ian Scicluna on Gas Gas currently has a marginal advantage over Manuel Camilleri also on a Gas Gas motorcycle. So ir is expected that this last competitive event will be decisive for this classification.
At the end of the day’s program ASMK is expected declare and present the Champions Trophies to the winners on site. During this last race of this activity some kind of surprise it is expected to follow during the celebrations together with other preparations done by both the drivers and fans to honour the Championship winners.
