The Star (St. Lucia) - - 36TH INDEPENDENCE -

The Saint Lu­cia Moto X Club will this week­end host two show­ings as part of the cel­e­bra­tions for Saint Lu­cia’s 36th In­de­pen­dence An­niver­sary. On Sun­day Fe­bru­ary 22, In­de­pen­dence Day, the Club (the only one of its kind reg­is­tered with the Min­istry of Youth and Sports) will form part of the of­fi­cial ac­tiv­i­ties in Vieux Fort. The Moto X Club has been in­vited by the of­fice of the prime min­is­ter to stage a spe­cial show­case. The ac­tiv­ity will be held op­po­site the Phillip Marcelin Ground in Vieux Fort from 1 pm. It will be pre­ceded how­ever, by the first leg of the club’s an­nual round the is­land ride, from Cas­tries to Vieux Fort along the West Coast.

Then on Mon­day Fe­bru­ary 23, a na­tional hol­i­day, the Saint Lu­cia Moto X Club will be de­fend­ing its ti­tle against clubs and rid­ers from Mar­tinique, Guade­loupe, Bar­ba­dos and St. Vin­cent and the Gre­nadines.

This event will fea­ture com­pe­ti­tions in three race classes-A,B,C. For the first time in the club’s his­tory, ten ju­nior rid­ers will par­tic­i­pate in the “Class C” cat­e­gory. This, the Saint Lu­cia Moto X Club says, is tes­ti­mony of the growth and con­tin­u­ing po­ten­tial of Mo­tocross here in Saint Lu­cia, as a vi­able en­ter­tain­ment sport­ing event. The Club is thank­ful for the en­dorse­ment by the Gov­ern­ment, for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Na­tional In­de­pen­dence ac­tiv­i­ties as well as to spon­sors Cli­max and DuBoulay’s Bot­tling Com­pany Ltd.
