The Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) presented by MXStore has continued to closely monitor the health crisis developments in Victoria and NSW over the last two weeks. The effects COVID-19 are having on state borders restrictions and the potential impacts this may have on the current 2020 championship dates.
Due to the recent spike in cases in Victoria and NSW, the up coming Round 7 & 8 of AORC, schedule to be held in Nowra, NSW on 29-30 August are currently under review. The final decision to be announced on Friday 31st of July 2020.
Any future decision by AORC to cancel the Nowra round will not impact the NSW State title currently scheduled to also occur on that weekend program.
The AORC team has already anticipated the likelihood of further disruptions to the 2020 calendar, and a backup date for the weekend of November 14-15, has been put on hold should the August date prove not possible.
AORC would like to thank its hosts clubs who support the championship, our riders, officials, in addition to our loyal sponsors for their support and patience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
AORC remains committed to racing in 2020 and keeping you informed as further information is available.
