It was nothing short of sweet in Coonalpyn, South Australia as the Seniors screamed across the WR 450F test track for Round 9 of the 2019 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC).

Over seven demanding, sandy laps, Honda RideRed rider Emma Milesevic used her prior Motocross experience to catapult to the top of the Women‰Ûªs class, whilst Lee Stephens drove comfortably into first place for the Veterans.

It was extra sweet though for Yamaha Motor Australia's Kirk Hutton, as he claimed first place for Masters, clocking up enough points to be crowned the 2019 AORC Masters Champion!

Women‰Ûªs
This weekend marks a momentous occasion for two ladies in the AORC pits. Milesevic scored her second class win in her first full season, looking utterly at home on the sandy WR 450F test track as she crossed the finish line with a total time of 52:42.653.

Second place was scored by our flying swede, Yamaha's Emelie Karlsson, who came in hot after Milesevic with a total time of 54:14.649.

The second lady who can celebrate a very successful weekend and impressive career in Off-Road is Jess Gardiner, who finished this weekend making history in the ladies class. Never before in AORC has a competitor in the Women‰Ûªs class clocked up 2,000 points and we congratulate Gardiner on the fantastic effort!

Gardiner finished Round 9 in the third and final podium place, with a total time of 55:37.788.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really happy with how today went, so I couldn‰Ûªt have asked for a better today,‰Û

Masters
Masters Champion is another title Hutton can happily add to his already impressive resume, which includes numerous other Australian titles and FIM International Six Days‰Ûª Enduro (ISDE) medals. Aboard his Yamaha, Hutton closed off Round 9 with a total time of 52:38.729.

Peter Rudd stole away second place today behind Hutton, with a total time of 56:48.313.

Third place for Round 9 of the Masters was won by Owen Richards, who clocked in a total time of 59:11.253 after a demanding seven laps.

‰ÛÏI had no idea that I would be coming away today with the round win as well as the Championship title,‰Û
