AORC set to return August 1 | News

The Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship, presented by MXstore will fire back into action with a doubleheader of sprint racing at Murray Bridge, South Australia on August 1 and 2.

With state borders opening up, AORC organisers are excited to continue the 2020 championship. The final eight rounds will be held in South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, and for the first time in Tasmania. Rounds 1-4 were held earlier in the year prior to COVID-19 restrictions.

“We have a world class field of riders from our junior riders, right through to our senior men’s and women’s classes, who we know are eager to get back on track and continue the 2020 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship presented, by MXstore,” said MA Off-Road Events Manager, Matthew Falvo.

“Our Yamaha AORC, presented by MXstore, has produced world class racing this year and we know riders, teams and officials are eager for rounds five and six at Murray Bridge, South Australia.

“We thank everyone from our riders, officials and sponsors for their support and patience during the COVID-19 pandemic, and while there will be some restriction in place at events, we are very excited to get back on track.”

As a racing community there will need to be an understanding that it will not be a return to sport as usual.

Certain State and Federal Government restrictions and measures will likely remain in place but organisers are confident that if government guidelines are followed the championship will continue to prosper.
