Following a 2 month absence due to the pandemic restrictions, the Gozo Motocross Association organised the Quarter Finals for the Gozo Motocross Championship 2021 fuelled by Enemed, last Sunday at the Ta' Xhajma motocross racetrack in Nadur, Gozo.
Usual motocross Sundays are boasting with riders and their bikes, together with local and foreign motocross fans cheering on their favorite rider. However, yesterday was somewhat different as the races were held behind closed doors, with the public and spectators not being allowed on track. This comes after the recent restrictions published by the health department, allowing sport activities to take place with minimal or no public presence.
The riders braved their way through immense heat and lots of dust as they challenged each other in this last bid to achieve the best position possible.
Final results of the day were as follows:
1st place - Steve Xuereb
2nd place - Mario Cauchi
1st place - Jorn Stellini
2nd place - Robert Spiteri
3rd place - William Sant
1st place - Mark Camilleri
2nd place - Jurgen Attard
3rd place - Steve Cassar
1st place - Scott Donovan
2nd place - Luke Caruana
Lorenzo Casu, GMA's own scrutineer, awarded trophies to the winners sponsored by Throttle & Gear Co.
In Class A, current overall champion Steve Xuereb leads the way in Class A and confirmed his place once again as the overall champion for this season as Mario Cauchi will not be able to reach Xuereb in the points.
Jorn Stellini continues to head Class B followed by Robert Spiteri, Sylvan Caruana and Matthew Zammit.
Class C is still indecisive between riders Jurgen Attard and young Mark Camilleri, as the first place is all to race for. Steve Cassar and Anthony Fenech follow in third and fourth place respectively.
Luke Caruana still holds his first position in Class D, closely followed by Scott Donovan, Chris T. Mizzi, Paul Caruana, Emma Xuereb, Marvin Sultana, Jake Camilleri and Damien Tonna.
