2017 Yamaha AORC Rounds 1 & 2 are now POSTPONED.

Motorcycling Australia wishes to advise all competitors and teams, that the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship Rounds 1 & 2 (April 8th & 9th) at Dungog, New South Wales, is postponed due to extreme weather conditions.

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

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

Whilst we understand there may be frustrations surrounding the decision to postpone the event, we must ensure the reasonable safety of everyone involved in the AORC Rounds. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

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 Rawson, VIC on 22nd & 23rd April 2017.
