It may have taken a few years but Josh Green has finally got it done.

After thirteen years of trying Josh Green can call himself an Outright winner of the Australian Off-Road Championship following the final round of the 2023 Australia Off-Road Championship at Dugong, NSW, last weekend.

Green has won class divisions and podiumed in Outright but has never stood on the top step, until now. Green came into the weekend with a comfortable 27-point lead but after a run of recent injuries, he was taking nothing for granted.

He put up a fight on day one to finish second in his class and secure his first championship of the year in the E2 division, but it was the Outright win Green was after and his third on the day meant all he needed was a single point at the 12th and final round.

Sunday dawned and Green raced well within himself to finish the day out safely to secure enough points and claim the 2023 AORC Outright Championship.

“This has been a long time coming and after so many attempts, it’s awesome to finally win an Outright championship,” Green explains. “This year has had its challenges with injury after injury and there were even times when I thought me winning Outright just wasn’t meant to be in my career, but the team and I kept working and here we are with the number 1 plate.

“There are so many people that work behind the scenes to get me on the track and keep me there and they have all played a part in helping me achieve this result. It was cool to have my family here as well as my partner as they don’t go to many races. It was also a good feeling to get it done with AJ. We have been together for a long time as rider and manager and still have a great working relationship. Together we have enjoyed a lot of round and series wins, but I think this is the one we both wanted,” Green concluded.
