An eighth outright victory for the season has seen Toby Price secure the 2015 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) title at Kyogle on Sunday.
The Motorex KTM Off-Road Racing Team rider claimed his fifth AORC crown with two rounds remaining in the series, courtesy of his win in Round 10.
Price (who also took out the E3 Class) entered Sunday‰Ûªs round only needing to finish ahead of Active8 Yamaha‰Ûªs Josh Green (E1 Class winner), who ended up third outright behind Saturday‰Ûªs Round 9 winner, CDR Yamaha‰Ûªs Chris Hollis (E2 Class victor).
Price‰Ûªs fifth AORC title caps off what has been an amazing fortnight for the 27-year-old, following the announcement of his two-year deal with the KTM Factory Red Bull Rally Racing squad from next season.
"We‰Ûªre stoked." Price enthused. "That's the result we were looking for, and we had a good weekend.
"Saturday I didn‰Ûªt quite fire into gear straight away and there were a few mistakes. We weren't allowed to walk the track and it was meant to be cross country, but it ended up being sprints, so I came in not too prepared on Saturday and it took me a little bit to get going.
"But we still had a pretty good result finishing second yesterday and coming away with the win today and my fifth Australian off-road championship is just a dream come true.
"It's been a great year and I can't thank the whole KTM team enough, Jeff Leisk and Grabbo and all the boys, Mick and Trav and Blizzard, Tim Cole, everyone‰Ûªs been an awesome help this year and made it all that little bit easier for myself to worry about what I've got to do. So, yeah, unreal!‰Û
