8 months ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: John Pearson Media

The Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) today released race weekend locations for the first six of 12 rounds of the 2020 national championship series. A highlight of the 2020 AORC will be the return to competition of the recently crowned Australian World Champion International Six Day Enduro (ISDE) Junior Team, as well as members of the Australian team that finished second overall at the ISDE in Portugal.
With new excitement around our world championship team, the AORC kick-starts the 2020 season off returning to Toowoomba, featuring a new Cooby Dam venue for Rounds 1 and 2, on February 22-23. The championship then heads south to Dungog, NSW, on March 14-15 for Rounds 3 and 4, and a new venue at Nowra for Rounds 5 and 6 on April 18-19. The 2020 Championship will continue to use a double-header format, which will see six weekends make up 12 rounds of the AORC for 2020.

Motorcycling Australia Off-Road Events Manager, Matthew Falvo, said the 2020 Yamaha AORC was shaping up to be the best year yet. “With the recently crowned World Champion Junior Team and overall second-placed Australian ISDE team returning for action in 2020, we will have the best riders in the world competing in the Yamaha AORC,” Falvo said. “We are very excited for the 2020 Yamaha AORC to be returning to Toowoomba, Dungog, and Nowra, where we have held successful events in the past. With new exciting venues in the 2020 AORC, we are sure to again field upwards of 200 plus riders for each event in every state.”
