AORC Rounds 1 and 2 Postponed Due To Extreme Weather

Motorcycling Australia regrets to advise The Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship, presented by MXStore Rounds 1 & 2 on March 27-28 at Nowra, New South Wales, is postponed due to extreme weather.

In consultation with key AORC event organisers, Motorcycling Australia has made the joint decision that the AORC Rounds 1 & 2 will not go ahead. The Nowra area and surrounds have been and will continue to be affected by ongoing extreme weather events currently in place in New South Wales.

Presently, the tracks are unrideable and road access to the event is in doubt in line with current weather predictions.

Motorcycling Australia CEO Peter Doyle:
“Whilst we understand there may be frustrations surrounding the decision to postpone the event, Motorcycling Australia and Oyster Bay Motorcycle Club have the responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the AORC Rounds.  

“We thank the AORC riders, our championship partners and fans for their understanding at this time, as these circumstances our outside of our control with the extreme weather conditions devastating New South Wales”

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Competitors will be contacted regarding the issuing of refunds.

Further information on the new dates will be announced at a later stage and Motorcycling Australia will keep competitors informed. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you at AORC Rounds 3 & 4 at Golden Beach, VIC on 17th & 18th April 2021
