AORC Rounds 1 & 2 Cancelled | Latest

Motorcycling Australia (MA) has confirmed Rounds 1 & 2 of the Australian Off Road Championship (AORC) have been cancelled and will not go ahead at any stage during 2017.

Rounds 1 & 2 were originally slated for April 8-9 but were postponed due to “extreme weather.”

In an official press release MA stated;

Motorcycling Australia wishes to update all competitors and teams the status of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship Rounds 1 & 2 at Dungog, New South Wales, originally postponed due to extreme weather events.

Working in consultation with key stakeholders involved in the running and organising of the Yamaha AORC, as well multiple Australian Championship disciplines, it has been determined that Rounds 1 & 2 will not go ahead at any stage in 2017.

The decision has been made to ensure the least disruption and impact for riders and teams competing in other Off-Road events both domestically and internationally.

Whilst we understand there may be frustrations surrounding the collaborative decision to cancel the event, MA and the AORC have explored all available possibilities in relation rescheduling Rounds 1 & 2 in 2017.

Both MA and the Yamaha AORC appreciate competitor and team patience and understanding in this matter, and otherwise look forward to seeing you at AORC Rounds 7 & 8 at Renmark, SA on 24-25 June 2017.
