AUSTRALIAN OFF-ROAD CHAMPIONSHIP

ABOUT AORC

The Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) first came about in 2007 after being previously run in 2005 and 2006 as the National Off-Road Series. The Australian Off-Road community were pushing for a nationally recognised Championship after only meeting once a year at the Australian Four Day Enduro (A4DE), otherwise only being able to compete at the State Championship level. This then prompted the National Off-Road Series and what is now known as ‘the AORC’. From 2007 until 2009 the championship was promoted privately. In 2010, Motorcycling Australia (MA) took over management of the AORC, MA continues to do so to this day.

The Australian Off-Road Championship is the official Enduro championship of Motorcycling Australia. The AORC is both nationally and internationally recognised as producing top level Off-Road riders and is a platform where the country’s best competitors and Official’s combine to put on Australia’s biggest Off-Road show. The AORC is an international stepping stone for Australian Off-Road racing talent, producing many champions who have gone on to ride at International level. Many have even gone on to win world championships and have representing Australia in the International Six Day Enduro (ISDE).

If racing through tight bush trails and fast open tracks appeals to you, then you should consider racing in the AORC. It’s a case of rider and bike versus the elements of natural terrain. There are three formats that are raced in the AORC across a season which are detailed below.

AUSTRALIAN OFF-ROAD CHAMPIONSHIP

RACE FORMATS

Sprint 
Sprint is an off-road, natural terrain event consisting of a number of heats of a short course (approx between 9-12 minutes). Each heat is set along the lines of an Enduro Special Test. The rider in each class with the least total elapsed time will be declared the winner of the class. They will race this track over the course of a day as many times as possible. Riders will race against the clock and start 15-30 seconds apart.

Cross Country 
Cross Country is an off-road, natural terrain, continuous multi-lap event with each lap being above 10kms in length. The intended lap time is usually greater than 15 minutes approximately. The rider in each class completing the most laps in the least elapsed time will be declared the winner of the class. Seniors will race for a maximum of 3 hours, with Juniors a maximum of 2 hours. It Starts with riders lined up in single row, they start only one row at a time by seeding/class and have a minimum of 1 minute between rows starting.

Enduro
Enduro is an extended cross-country, with Sprints/Special tests inside of it. It is a time-card event whereby a number of stages are raced in a time trial against the clock, which require competitors to maintain a prescribed km per hour average over varying terrain. Competitors are moderated by a series of secret time keeping checkpoints along the race course and are penalized based on their arrival time to the checkpoints. The rider in each class with the least total elapsed time will be declared the winner of the class.
