AORC 2022: The Calendar is here!

The 2022 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship, presented by MXstore (AORC), is today announcing the full 12 round 2022 calendar.

The 2022 calendar will see the teams and riders compete in four states across the 12 rounds with some new locations, past evens returning and favourites back in business. The 2022 Championship will test each rider from junior riders right through to the World’s best who compete in the AORC.

The popular double-header format returns with Rounds 1 & 2 kickstarting the year in Queensland on 19-20 March. 

Rounds 3 & 4 are again in Queensland, this time in Mackay, around 1000km north of Brisbane. This event will be held from 8-9 April and will see the Penrite ProMX Championship Presented By AMX Superstores series alongside the AORC in what will be a fantastic showcase of the best in Australian off-road racing.

Rounds 5 & 6 takes the championship south to perennial favourite Kyogle, NSW in the picturesque surrounds of the Northern Rivers region, around an hour inland from Byron Bay.

After a few attempts that were cruelled by external issues, the Nowra, NSW locale will host Round 7 & 8. The south Coast region is a perfect setting for the AORC, some hour south of Wollongong and a couple of hours south of Sydney.

For Rounds 9 & 10 , the Championship heads (slightly) west to Kingston, SA for the first time since 2018. Kingston SE is a coastal town located in the state’s south-east coastline on the shores of Lacepede Bay, some 240 kms southeast of Adelaide.

The finale of the of 2022 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship, presented by MXstore – Rounds 11 & 12 – will see the teams load their trucks onto the Spirit of Tasmania as we head south to Tasmania for the first time in the Championship’s history. This landmark event will be based out of Wynyard on the state’s North West coast, just an hour west of the ferry terminal in Devonport.
