The victor list on Saturday at Coonalpyn, South Australia (SA) for Round 8 of the 2019 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) was a near perfect reflection of the winners list from Broken Hill a fortnight prior, with the exception of powerhouse Luke Styke.

Styke made a resounding call to protect his Champion position in the 2019 season, finishing on top of the E1 class, alongside Daniel Milner in E2, Daniel ‰ÛÏChucky‰Û

Unfailingly true to form, regardless of injuries sustained during today‰Ûªs racing, Milner rode comfortably into first place for E2 today, with a total time of 59:30.788. Eyeing off first place though and continually pushing Milner in an exciting battle for the E2 Championship title was Active8 Yamaha Yamalube's Josh Green, who earnt second place today with a total time of 1:00:50.038.

Third place today was taken by a familiar face in the AORC paddock, Riley Graham, whose comfort and ease in Coonalpyn‰Ûªs sandy conditions was clear as he clocked in a total time of 1:02:33.987.

Fourth place today was fought right to the end by two recognisable and well respected figures in AORC and Enduro racing. Jeremy Carpentier (Yamaha MX Store Ballards Off Road Team) and Matthew Phillips (MX Store, KTM) bobbed and weaved all day for fourth place, but was Carpentier who prevailed, with a total time of 1:03:40.107. Phillips finished close behind with a total time of 1:03:57.726.

The Daniel‰Ûªs were on fire today, much like they have been all season, and like Milner in E2, Chucky effortlessly claimed gold in E3 today. Aboard his Sherco, Andy Wilksch landed comfortably into second place behind Chucky, with a total time of 1:02:56.028.

Rounding out the E3 podium was Jesse Lawton with a total time of 1:05:12.894.
