Off Road

Stanford, Milner, Simpson, Higlett reign supreme for Seniors at Yamaha AORC

Posted:

The first day of the Miva Sprint Races got underway this morning, for Round 5 of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC). The premier classes for Yamaha AORC are extremely competitive and E3, E2, E1 and EJ class contenders put it all on the line for victory.

The pace and weather at Miva was hot, with the tracks being in peak condition when senior riders left the YZ450FX test gate. A number of riders managed to turn the tables on their rivals from Rawson to make the situation intriguing.

E3

Lachie Stanford of the Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team landed to first blow of the weekend for in class, with a total time of 1:18:02.179. It‰Ûªs a great start to the weekend for the rider from Byron Bay as he looks to take out the round overall. Despite not getting into the flow straight away, Stanford noted that a setup change from the opening rounds allowed for strong pace in the last four tests. Lyndon Snodgrass of the KTM Enduro Team was his closest challenger and the two appear to be on course to battle for the rest of the year for E3 spoils.

Snodgrass had a total sprint time of 1:18:25.829. Tom Mason showed what it takes to fight with the Championship‰Ûªs elite by rounding up the top three in third position on his KTM. He finished with a total elapsed time of 1:20:49.488.

E2

All eyes were on the highly competitive E2 class to see who would come out on top. Once again Daniel Milner of the KTM Enduro Team led from the front to take another victory. He was imperious in the sixth test with the fastest lap time of 9:23.960. Milner discussed his impressive performance;

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm feeling on top of my game at the moment. Today was a great day in which I won every test; although Greeny really put it to me in a couple of them. All that matters is coming out on top and hopefully we can repeat the result tomorrow. The track was unbelievably good today, its great to see the effort that has gone into the track, there is a very nice quarry section that‰Ûªs technical, as well as rocky terrain and nice flowing clay surface.‰Û
