Last Sunday the Gozo Motocross Association (GMA) organised it’s first event at the Gozo Horse Racing Track at Ta’ Xhajma. This was a special event organised for the sole purpose of donating funds to the Arka Foundation.
GMA’s President Frank Xuereb designed three courses of which one was dedicated for motocross and enduro bikes, one for autocross competition and another one around the inside perimeter of the horse track. Meanwhile riders with 80cc bikes could compete as well. 40 motocross and enduro bikers participated in one of the most exciting and challenging flat races of all. Ten autocross vehicles also participated in several heats throughout the afternoon. The event started at 1pm and ended at 6pm.
