Motorcycle club “Ugo Gallo” of Crotone is about to go through very busy times. The first of a long series of events, the opening of Motonight, is scheduled for Friday August 7 at 8.30 p.m. and will take place in Piazzetta Rino Gaetano. The initiative has been organized by Motorcycle Club Ugo Gallo, Vespa Club Pitagora, Skuderia Krò, Rocker Garage and Kona Tiki Ba, which are going to set up stands for the exhibition of vintage Vespas and motorcycles, motocross bikes and old Vespa advertising posters. Furthermore, they are in charge of the presentation of an awareness campaign on the theme of road safety and of the official programme for the Supermarecross of Crotone. Live music and a small beer festival are part of the arrangements.
Preparations for the Supermarecross are in full swing. An associates meeting has taken place in the past few days to settle a few organizational details for Supermarecross, the International Sand Motocross Championship of Italy – Gaetano di Stefano Trophy to be held in Crotone on October 24 and 25. The appointment in Crotone is going to be the fifth of 2015, as the trials in Fregene (Rome), Francavilla al Mare (Chieti), Bibione (Venezia) and Policoro (Messina) have already been disputed. After Crotone, which is the only Calabrian date of the Championship, Giardini Naxos of Taormina (Messina) are going to host the last trial of the year. The upcoming edition is the 22nd for Crotone, as well as the 18th Paolo Manfredi and Dionigi Regalini Memorial Day. Fabio Gallo, president of the Motorcycle club, released the following declaration after the meeting: “it has been a crucial meeting, as we have just finalized a lot of organizational arrangements, especially for the Supermarecross. We are now working on the Festival of Motorcyclists, that we have called Motonight. It will be an occasion to celebrate the Silver Star for outstanding sporting achievement that the Motorcycle club has recently received from CONI (i.e. the Italian National Olympic Committee). We have every intention of organizing an unforgettable Supermarecross. For this purpose, we are working in unison with the Regional Committee of FMI (i.e. the Italian Motorcycling Federation), the Township of Crotone and the Pro Loco organization.”
