Il-Hadd wara nofsinhar fil-korsa tal-Marsa nghata l-bidu ghall-kampjonat Cassar Fuels ghal zwiemel tal-klassi Premier fuq distanza qasira ta’ 2140m. Dan permezz ta’ tliet heats li kienu jaghmlu parti mis-36 laqgha tal-istagun fuq disa’ tigrijiet kollha ghal zwiemel tat-trott. It-tliet heats intrebhu minn Label Chouan, Orcas Bac u Okilaibo.

Mill-heats Premier disa’ zwiemel ghaddew mill-ewwel ghall-finali. Fl-ewwel heat,David Ellul talab lill-Franciz tieghu Label Chouan biex izid fil-giri f’nofs id-distanza u dan ma naqasx milli jirregistra t-tieni rebha konsekuttiva facilment minn Mark de Chamant (Michael Seychell) u Ygor of Pass (Tony Demanuele). Pro Shop (Ronald James) temm ir-raba’. Ir-rebbieh kellu medja ta’ 1.15.5” fil-kilometru.

L-ahhar elf metru tat-tieni heat Premier kienu determinanti biex Orcas Bac (Rodney Gatt) imur quddiem u jiehu t-tielet rebha tas-sena minghajr tbatija u b’vantagg ta’ aktar minn ghaxar tulijiet. Ghaddew ukoll ghall-finali mieghu Vanmaker Limburgia (Charles Camilleri) u l-kwotat Nicos de Peneme (Kevin Azzopardi). Orion du Vaumicel (Anton Cassar) temm ir-raba’. Is-success ta’ Orcas Bac wasal f’medja ta’ 1.14.3” fil-kilometru.

B’kuntrast, it-tielet heat kienet wahda ferm kumbattuta. Il-kwotat Okilaibo (Julian Farrugia) mar quddiem madwar 700m mill-linja finali u hekk kif hafna hasbu li kien se jkollu rebha komda dlonk wasal fid-dritta finali l-assalt ta’ Ohime Mag (Ronald Cassar). Okiliabo ha r-raba’ rebha tas-sena verament bi ftit mill-istess Ohime Mag b’Absolut Spender (Mark Desira) u Versace Boko (Warren Spiteri) itemmu warajhom f’dik l-ordni. Okilaibo wkoll wettaq medja tajba hafna ta’ 1.14.2” fil-kilometru. Ta’ min wiehed jinnota li ghal dan iz-ziemel dan kien it-tielet success konsekuttiv u Okiliabo kien qieghed jirritorna wara l-waqfa tas-Sajf u wara li fl-ewwel parti tal-istagun kien rebah zewg finali tal-oghla klassi.

Il-programm inkluda wkoll tliet tigrijiet normali tal-klassi Silver. L-ewwel wahda zviluppat fi dwell eccitanti bejn tliet zwiemel fid-dritta finali.

Attakk mibdi f’nofs id-dritta finali u minn naha ta’ gewwa wassal lid-debba Fillandiza Isebel (Christian Xerri) biex tirregistra l-ewwel rebha taghha fi xtutna fit-tielet tigrija mill-istess klassi.
