Brothers Clayton and Kyle Camilleri stole the limelight on Sunday after dominating the Motocross Class A series and Open as another round from the Pasta Poiatti National Championships was completed at the circuit in Ta’ Qali.

This season, the Motocross championship began later than usual due to the Maltese team’s preparations for their first experience of international racing in France, held earlier this month.

Clayton Camilleri, riding a KTM, won all heats in Class A.

His younger brother Kyle, also on a KTM but with a smaller engine capacity, produced a decent challenge but had to settle for second place with Edward Ciantar (Kawasaki) third.

Gozitan Mario Cauchi was the top rider in Motocross Class B after winning both heats.

Elvin Debono (Kawasaki) was a close runner-up to Cauchi with John Stellini (Kawasaki) claiming third place.

Another round of races from the Autocross Modified Cars Class were also held on Sunday.

Mark Galea (Fiat Ritmo) was the fastest driver in the qualifying heats but in the Class A final, it was Philip Joe Vella, in his Opel Nova, who showed the better qualities to register his second win of the season.

Galea had to settle for second and Christian Apap (Ford Fiesta) third followed by Josef Grech (Ford Fiesta) and Noel Zammit (Fiat Punto).

The Class B final was red-flagged following an incident involving Joseph Micallef’s Opel Nova. Luckily, no injuries were reported and victory was awarded to Jonathan Camilleri (Opel Corsa).
