Toby Price Leads The Way In Queensland AORC Day One

Posted:

A change in race format and an injured right foot have done little to stop Toby Price from claiming his sixth round win for the 2015 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship at Aratula on Saturday.

The Motorex KTM Off-Road Team star extended his lead on top of the overall championship standings and the E3 Class with a win in the Round 7 enduro, edging our CDR Yamaha‰Ûªs Chris Hollis (E2 class winner) and Active8 Yamaha‰Ûªs Josh Green (E1 class winner).

Husqvarna Off-Road Racing Team‰Ûªs Glenn Kearney and Green‰Ûªs Active8 Yamaha teammate Beau Ralston rounded out the top five.

Price, who was visibly restricted while walking courtesy of an ankle injury suffered in his successful Finke Desert Race campaign a fortnight earlier, fought his way back after trailing Hollis early.

Hollis led after five timed tests before Price seized control in the sixth to ultimately finish just over four seconds quicker after eight tests.

In the Transmoto 19 and Under class, Suzuki rider Wil Ruprecht recorded his first class win for the year and in the process finished 13th in the outright standings. He finished ahead of Yamaha Privateer Peter Daniel Allen and Kawasaki‰Ûªs Lyndon Snodgrass.

In the Women‰Ûªs, it was Yamaha Racing‰Ûªs Tayla Jones who again took out the class honours. Despite the absence of her nearest rival in the championship standings Jess Gardiner due to a broken arm, Jones was pushed all the way by Yamaha duo Jemma Wilson and Emelie Karlsson in second and third place respectively.

Robert Day was the standout rider in the Masters' class, while Kirk Hutton romped to his seventh class win in succession in the Veterans.

In the juniors, it was another good day for the Brierley family with twins Josh and Mitchell taking out the J3 and J2 classes respectively, while Ben Kearns closed the gap on Fraser Higlett in the overall class standings with a victory in the J4 class.

The eighth round of the 2015 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship will again take place in Aratula on Sunday, with riders taking on the enduro format for the second day in a row.
