Meanwhile on Sunday 6th January 2019 ASMK continued its events at Ta' Qali Sport Complex. This event was the 3rd event of the Honda Motocross National Championship 2018/2019 where 19 competitors participated and divided into three main classes.

During the day Class A rider Kyle Camilleri on his KTM motorcycle continued to dominate and demonstrate in Motocross. After winning the qualification runs Kyle went on to defend his lead during the two Heats of the day by winning first place in both Heats and thus he registered his third win in this season's championship. During the Heats Kyle Camilleri was always followed by Bernard Sammut on a Beta and by young Mark Mamo on his Yamaha motorcycle. Sammut and Mamo finished the day in second and third places respectively.

In Class B Daniel Caruana on his Honda Motorcycle dominated the day. First he won the qualification then during the Heats he was in combat with Gary Debono on a KTM motor. Debono took the lead at the start of the first Heat while Caruana followed close by. But in the 5th Lap Caruana passed ahead of Debono and held this placing to the Finish of the race. During the second Heat Caruana was determined to defend his lead in the race so much so that he made a very good launch right on the Start Grid. This time it was Caruana who went in the lead while being followed by Debono. Yet the Final Result registers that Caruana won both Heats of the class and he was followed by Debono and Matthew Gauci on Beta in third place.

In the Veterans class we saw that Paul Deguara on his KTM motorcycle was determined to dominate this class so much so that right from the Start he managed to win the qualification runs and also continued winning both two Race Heats of the day. Thus Deguara registered his first win of this season. During the day Deguara was always followed on track by Jethro Sant on his Yamaha motor who ended the day in second place whilst third place winner was William Sant on a Honda.

Meanwhile, the Association published a date for the registration for all women interested in participating in the 'Ladies Only Demolition Derby' to be held soon. This Demolition is to held on the request shown by women wishing to compete in an all women Demolition Derby but not with men due to the fact that many male competitors are Demolition experts. The Registration and Closing Date is on Thursday 24th January 2019. Also ASMK is holding a meeting for all prospective participants. The meeting will be held at the National School of Sports in Pembroke and starts at 8.00pm.
