On Sunday, a FunRace was held at Ta’ Xhajma Motocross track, with both riders and spectators caught in a bracing, bitter cold wind, accompanied by beautiful, bright, Gozitan sunshine.
Organised by the Gozo Motocross Association, the afternoon proved great entertainment for competitors and their fans, with riders donning Christmas hats over their helmets, for the racing, if they could keep them on in the wind……A rider reshuffle took place in all of the classes and the results are as follows:
1st place – Steve Cassar
2nd place – Anthony Fenech
3rd place – Jurgen Attard
Class B:- 2 stroke engine
1st place – Etienne Bigeni
2nd place – Glenn Vella
3rd place – Isaac Bartolo
Class A had the very top riders participating with 80cc and 125cc bikes:
1st place – Glenn Vella
2nd place – Daniel Portelli
3rd place – Keith Bugeja
Winners where presented with trophies and Ravenol products for their achievments.
The GMA said that Sunday’s event was supported by Ravenol Lubricants oil at Galea General Services Ltd.
Next up in the programme of racing is the fourth round of the Yamaha Gozo Motocross Championship 2019, on Sunday, the 20th of January at Ta’ Xhajma Motocross track, and races start at 1pm.
