Seniors raced from the bLU cRU and WR450F Test Tracks in Sunday‰Ûªs racing for Round 6 of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) which was full of thrills and spills as the E1, E2, E3 and Transmoto EJ class competed for victory.
The track was once again in prime condition and Scott Keegan, Daniel Milner, Lachie Stanford and Fraser Higlett rode brilliantly to take the wins for their respective classes.
Scott Keegan of the Snap Fitness Yamaha team took victory for the E1 class, achieving the win after Jack Simpson was given a five-minute penalty added to his overall time by the stewards. Keegan had an overall time of 1:11:41.468. The next rider to complete the sprint was Wil Ruprecht of the Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing Team, with his compiled total test time of 1:15:46.893. Completing the podium trifecta for the E1 Class was Brad Hardaker on his Yamaha. His accumulated lap time was 1:17:46.182.
Daniel Milner put on another sensational performance for the KTM Enduro Team. With the KTM rider in such imperious form yesterday, it was always likely that Milner could achieve another clean sweep. Milner has not lost a race since his return to Yamaha AORC this year. His overall combined time was a 1:11:26.031. Josh Green (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing Team) was once again Milner‰Ûªs greatest challenger. His total aggregated time was a 1:12:26.499. Green summed up his Sprint Race performances over the weekend;
‰ÛÏThe bike was awesome and it handled everything I threw at it! There were mistakes here and there but overall it was a clean weekend. I‰Ûªm still not 100 percent fit from my injuries, but in this game you‰Ûªre never quite at your peak. It‰Ûªs tough, as Daniel (Milner) and I are aiming for the same position. At the moment he‰Ûªs doing a better job and we‰Ûªll have to improve to get ahead of him.‰Û
