It's all systems go this weekend for the Active8 Yamalube Yamaha off road team as they take on the opening two rounds of the 2018 Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC), held near Gympie, in Queensland..

After a long off season that included a fact finding mission to Europe to work alongside and share information with the Outriders Yamaha in France team that proved invaluable, the Active8 Yamalube Yamaha crew are fired up and ready to go for the AORC season opener this weekend.

Leading the team again will be experienced campaigner and multi time national champion, Josh Green. Green will contest the E2 (450cc) class in 2018 and is out to make it his best season yet after an off season filled with extensive testing and a rigorous off bike program.

"The off season has been good for the team and myself and we have really had the time to take a good look at things and make some improvements to the way we go about it,‰Û

Working from the bLU cRU assist truck and under the eye of the Active8 Yamalube Yamaha team will be the 2017 EJ (u19) champion, Michael Driscoll.

Last season was amazing for me and I achieved every goal I set for myself so this year I have set my goals higher and have worked even harder to reach them and hopefully, that all starts this weekend at Gympie,‰Û
