True to form, our Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) Juniors were nothing short of impressive as they fought through a new, highly technical test on the Yamaha YZ track. Across six laps, our J4, J3 and J2 classes tackled tight corners and steep climbs in an effort to land a spot on the podium. For Round 6 though, it was a clean streak for Blake Hollis in J4, Riley McGillivray in J3 and Billy Hargy in J2.
Notching up another win on his belt, Hollis was a sight to be seen as he blitzed across the Yamaha YZ track. With a total time today of 1:12:54.744, Hollis dominated the class, leading the charge by just shy of three minutes. Landing in second place for Round 6 was Zac Perry, with a total time of 1:15:48.805. Stealing away third place was Kobe Conley, who beat the likes of Mackenzie Johnson and Oscar Collins by just over two seconds, clocking in a total time of 1:16:08.881.
“It was a good day. I paced myself during the early stages of the day and avoided crashes, so really just tried to play it smart. I’m pretty happy with myself,” confirmed Hollis.
