HongNor’s Malta Success

422

Henry Portelli reports – “At last, despite every obstacle encountered we finally had our first off-road buggy event at the fabulous St Thomas Park track. Despite mixed weather conditions everything went as planned. One must also appreciate the high level of participation of the drivers as well as the spectators. A big thanks goes to Simon Delia of Simon Models for lending us the AMBrc timing equipment. On behalf of The Modelcentre, I would like to thank Peter Cain for taking care of our computer system with great success. I wish to thank everybody involved for your participation and collaboration. I must say that I was very impressed and grateful for ever bodies understanding and I would like to say thank you again and honestly say that it was a pleasure for me to see all those drivers attending this race. Hong Nor Factory team drivers Ramone Cassar and Frank Azzoppardi took part of this race and both made it to the finals. Frank TQ’d and led the race since beginning and completed in 1st position. Ramone Cassar was 2nd place for most of the race until a battery connection failure occurred and finished 6th. Nicholas Delia who is one of the Maltese top drivers took second place at the end followed by Roberto Migneco 3rd place.
