Eight competi- tors participated, divided into two classes which gave these results: In Class A Bonello Damon on a Gas Gas motorcycle per- formed very well and paved the way to win another champion- ship title. Damon this season finished first in class with only 9 points of penalty. Damon is followed by Sicilian Antonio Leonardi on another Gas Gas motorcycle but he finished the day in 2nd place with 21 points of penalty. Third place finisher is Joseph Scicluna on a Gas Gas too, who closed the day with 41 points of penalty. Class B saw the struggle be- tween Daniel Inguanez and Tony Curmi both on a Beta mo- torcycle. During the day Curmi started very well so that by the first three sections he had al- ready been leading his class by doing his utmost. Inguanez failed to beat Curmi in the sec- ond and third sections yet con- trolled the gap from growing. Curmi ended up winning this class with 56 points penalty while Inguanez followed in 2nd place with 58 points of penalty. Third place finisher is Manuel Camilleri on his Gas Gas with 79 points of penalty. Other Trials activity will be held on Saturday, 1st July.
