WR250R Rally goes for gold | Features | News

Australia’s WR250R Rally continues to expand with the third annual event set to for an unofficial world record.

The first event attracted 38 owners, while the second event saw 64 riders of the versatile Yamaha trail bike congregate at Cessnock, NSW for a two-day 500km adventure ride. Now Greg Yager and the RideADV team are aiming to entice the biggest ever collection of WR250Rs to congregate in one spot.

“To be honest we have no idea what the world record number of WR250Rs is so if anyone knows, please get in touch. Otherwise we’ll be claiming this as a world record…” jokes rally organiser Yager. This year’s event will once again be hosted by dirt bike legend Chris Watson of Chris Watson’s Motorcycles in Cessnock, NSW on 22 to 24 March.
There is still time to enter here:

The Rally covers prime trails around the Hunter region including the Watagan, Olney and Yengo State Forests. Prizes are awarded for a number of categories including best bike and furthest travelled. Now in its third year, the event attracts a wide range of riders from teenagers to octogenarians and of both sexes.
