A look back at Rawson and Entries Open for Rounds 5 & 6 in Miva Queensland

After a scintillating weekend at Rawson to kick off the year for the 2017 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC), attention now moves to Rounds 5 & 6, only 3 short weeks away at Miva in Queensland, May 13-14.

Rounds 3 & 4 at Rawson featured several master class rides by the talented Yamaha AORC competitors.

Wil Ruprecht from Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing Team took out E1 class. With his debut for the E1 class going exceptionally well so far, Ruprecht is sure to be a title contender from the get go for his class. The Yamaha rider won both of his respective class races over the weekend.

It was a perfect weekend for Daniel Milner of the KTM Enduro Team after returning from a stint in America. The former champion won both the cross-country and sprint races in the highly competitive E2 class. Milner has settled back into the Yamaha AORC championship exceptionally well.

Lyndon Snodgrass, also of the KTM Enduro Team, managed to claim the E3 class at Rawson with his cross-country master class and finishing second in the sprints behind Lachy Stanford of the Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team.

The Transmoto EJ class belonged to Yamaha mounted Michael Driscoll who mastered the track for the Under 19’s. His debut after switching from motocross is also providing excellent early results.

After the action packed debut rounds for the Yamaha AORC, its time to look towards Rounds 5 & 6 in Queensland.
