2020 Rounds 3 & 4 – What You Need To Know
You ready? We’re revved and ready for Rounds 3 & 4 of the 2020 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship presented by MXstore (AORC)! Kicking off here in the lush, recently watered hills of Dungog, New South Wales our competitors will tackle a two day Enduro, traversing just shy of 50kms each time they pass through control.
Before everything kicks into gear, make sure you’ve worded up on all the essentials. We’ve made it easy for you – just scroll on down and gander at everything from live timing, visiting the local area and where to access the entry list.
Committed to protecting the sport through the generations, AORC visited St Josephs Primary School in Dungog with Emma Milesevic (Penrite Honda) and Andy Wilksch (Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team). With 120 kids in attendance, the morning included walking students through how to effectively protect yourself from injury, appropriate protective gear as well as self discipline to get your mind and body prepared for events such as this weekend’s.
It was our pleasure to have the opportunity to speak with the students of St Josephs Primary School.
Located in the Hunter Region, Dungog is the quintessential Australian town renowned for its forests, mountains and rivers. Bordered by the Barrington Tops plateau, the region is characterised by rugged hilly country and two principal rivers, the Williams in the East and the Paterson in the West. The economy of this town and the Dungog Shire Council has traditionally been based on agriculture and timber, with the river flats suitable for intensive agricultural production.
Upon landing in the Dungog Region, there is a mountain of opportunities for activity. Visitors can explore the rainforests of Barrington Tops National Park, which are of international significance and form part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. Other areas of note include the Dungog Museum and the Clarence Town Historical Museum, which each focus on their respective town’s rich history with a desire for preserving and supporting the local heritage.
Head to Visit Dungog for more information.
