2012 Yamaha AORC dates announced

Posted:

Yamaha Motor Australia has continued its support of Off-Road Motorcycle Sport for another year, returning as the naming rights sponsor for the 2012 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC).

Yamaha Motor Australia's Motorsport Manager Ray Howard said he was looking forward to being a part of the AORC again in 2012.

"Yamaha Motor Australia (YMA) is pleased to be able to support the Australian Off-Road Championships," Howard said.

"The AORC is a cornerstone of the national Off-Road calendar, and we believe that our sponsorship of the event plays an important role in nurturing Off-Road sport.

"2012 is a key year for Yamaha due to the release of the new WR450F. This model was the first modern era four-stroke Enduro bike and has built up a loyal following and YMA will be supporting two teams who will showcase the new model."

Series Coordinator Denise Hore is thrilled to have Yamaha on-board for the 2012 Championship.

"Yamaha's support of the AORC has been, and continues to be, outstanding," Ms Hore said.

"The support of Yamaha made the 2011 Series a reality in the face of tough times, and allowed our riders to get out there and do what they do best.

"Yamaha's ongoing support in 2012 will ensure our Championship and our sport remains strong."

Motorcycling Australia (MA) CEO David White is pleased to welcome Yamaha back for another year.

"I would like to thank Yamaha for their continued support of the AORC and their commitment to the development and continuation of Off-Road competition in Australia," White said.

"Yamaha has been an integral supporter of our Championship for many years, and we are excited they have chosen to get behind the Series again in 2012.

"We look forward to working with Yamaha throughout the year to deliver the 2012 Series for the Australian Enduro community."

The AORC is an annual epic battle, bringing hundreds of Enduro riders and their bikes face-to-face with the best and worst of the tough Aussie elements to race against the conditions and the clock.

2012 is shaping up to be a bumper year for the AORC, with the Championship given the green light to run as an expanded 12-round Series across four Aussie states.

The AORC caravan will travel to the traditional haunts of New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, and make a return to Queensland after weather conditions in 2011 caused the Queensland rounds to be abandoned.

2012 will bring the challenge to the riders, with a spicy mix of Enduro, Cross Country and Sprint format rounds to be battled out on some of Australia's best terrain.

The 2012 Series will carry on the successful 2011 National and State combo, with all 12 Australian rounds to be run in conjunction with host State Championships.
