AORC Track Accessor Trent Lean gives the low down on what to expect from Dungog and who to keep your eye out for as the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) returns from the mid-season break.
Lean has been the AORC Track Accessor since 2016 fresh of taking out the master‰Ûªs title a staggering five times between 2011-2015 and during that he was also the team manager for the Suzuki Off-Road Team. To add to these roles Lean is also the Dungog Motorcycle Club President and what better person could we speak to about what to expect at Dungog on July 28-29.
In a season where the field has prayed for rain, it is looking like the rider‰Ûªs prayers may have been answered with Dungog seeing its fair share of rain.
‰ÛÏThe weather has been really kind to us up to this point, we don‰Ûªt need anymore rain as the conditions now will be ideal. A bit of sunshine between now and July 28 will dry out the pit area and make it great for everyone, if we get more rain the pits might be a little bit wet," Lean said.
‰ÛÏThe seniors and juniors can both expect two tests, there will be an enduro test and Cross test. The cross test will be predominately grass track and will be a flowy test, whereas the enduro test will be more technical with the dry creek bed and tree stumps similar to Hedley. The senior trail has a lot of single tracks, so it will be a great ride for all involved.‰Û
