Tasmania AORC Cancelled | News

The Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) has made the decision to cancel Round 9 and 10 scheduled for 17-18 October, Wynyard, Tasmania.

Organisers have said it was impossible for the Tasmania AORC round to go ahead due to the recent announcement by the Tasmanian Government of state border restrictions and closure until December.

The news follows the cancellation of Round 7 and 8 of the championship, which was to be held in Omeo, Victoria on September 19 and 20.

AORC, presented by MXstore, will continue to monitor State Government COVID-19 restrictions and their potential impacts this may have on the current remaining 2020 championship date.

At this stage, there is one final weekend scheduled for AORC on November 14 and 15.

The final venue is yet to be confirmed although will be announced in the coming weeks.

AORC with the Tasmanian Government remains committed to having a Tasmania AORC event and will look to explore this for the future.

Three rounds of this year’s AORC series were raced before the COVID-19 pandemic forced organises to pause the championship.

Yamaha’s Luke Styke leads E3 class after a stand-out performance at Round 3 in Dungog. KTM rider Daniel Milner is firmly in charge of the E2 points standings after back-to-back wins at the opening three rounds.

Husqvarna’s Daniel Sanders is the E1 points leader with three round wins to his name.
