ASMK launch new sea­son to­mor­row

Malta Independent - - SPORT CLASSIFIEDS -

“As­soċ­jażżjoni Sport Mu­turi u Karozzi” (ASMK) is open­ing the 2016/2017 sea­son by a Tri­als event on to­mor­row at the Mo­tor­sport Track at Ta’ Qali. The com­pe­ti­tion is again be­ing spon­sored by Pasta Poiatti.

This sea­son is to in­clude six (6) races by the En­duro mo­tor­cy­cle bik­ers and eight (8) events by the Tri­als mo­tor­cy­cles. Al­most all such com­pe­ti­tions will be tak­ing place out­side the ASMK Sports As­so­ci­a­tion Com­plex. Also, ASMK will be run­ning an eight (8) Mo­tocross events cham­pi­onship to­gether with 12 cham­pi­onship events for the Au­tocross cars in a Stan­dard, Mod­i­fied and a Su­per Class which is be­ing launched as from this year.

The 2016/17 launch­ing event to­mor­row will be for the Tri­als Sec­tion which, fol­low­ing the suc­cess of last sea­son, will see the As­so­ci­a­tion con­tin­u­ing with its sup­port and run­ning th­ese events in a cham­pi­onship form. The As­so­ci­a­tion is bound to con­tinue ex­plor­ing new sites for the Tri­als and En­duro rid­ers cham­pi­onship events which are both at­trac­tive and com­pet­i­tive. The new lo­ca­tions are made pos­si­ble thanks to sev­eral quarry own­ers who are co­op­er­at­ing with ASMK to hold th­ese events in their lo­ca­tions.

Regis­tra­tion is open to­mor­row at 9am while the com­pet­i­tive Tri­als rid­ing com­pe­ti­tion starts at 10am. All reg­is­tered com­peti­tors will be di­vided in two classes: - Class A is for the more ex­pe­ri­enced and skilled rid­ers while the Class B is for Rid­ers who are less ex­pe­ri­enced in­clud­ing Begin­ners in this sport.

Mean­while the as­so­ci­a­tion is cur­rently on­go­ing prepara­tory work to ren­o­vate the Au­tocross track and to re-de­sign a new style Mo­tocross track. The Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee ap­proved th­ese two projects ear­lier this sum­mer but un­for­tu­nately the tracks re­con­struc­tion progress was laid back due to the high sum­mer tem­per­a­tures and the se­vere drought which re­sults in an al­most im­pos­si­ble sit­u­a­tion to con­struct the new dirt tracks sur­faces.

Al­though the as­so­ci­a­tion planned to start the cars events on 6 Novem­ber, this date could be post­poned for an­other day when all tracks’ lay­outs will have been com­pleted. More news and in­for­ma­tion about this date will be given in the com­ing days.

With re­gards to the new Mo­tocross track lay­out the com­peti­tors will again be see­ing An­gelo Chin­que­mani, a Si­cil­ian mo­tocross track build­ing ex­pert, in Malta. He will be per­son­ally driv­ing the heavy ma­chin­ery and be build­ing the new Mo­tocross track at Ta’ Qali. This is the third time that Chin­que­mani is en­gaged in such a project by the ASMK Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee who de­cided in favour of such an am­bi­tious project.

Chin­que­mani is ex­pected to be in Malta on 12 Novem­ber and is to com­mence work the fol­low­ing day. This project is ex­pected to take 10 days to be com­pleted.
