The 2020 Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) will fire back into action with a double header of sprint racing at Murray Bridge, South Australia on August 1 and 2…

In a statement released this week AORC explains that, as Australian state borders open up, the 2020 championship will continue with eight rounds in South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and for the first time in concluding in Tasmania (rounds 1-4 were held earlier in 2020).

Revised 2020 AORC calendar

  • Round 5/6 Aug 1-2 Murray Bridge, SA
  • Round 7/8 Aug 29-30 Nowra, NSW (rescheduled event, new date)
  • Round 9/10 Sept 19-20 Omeo, VIC 
  • Round 11/12 Oct 17-18 Wynyard, TAS

“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.

“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 force but AORC organisers are confident if everyone follows government guidelines and practice good personal hygiene, their championship will prosper.
