In response to ongoing developments and health concerns in relation to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and government imposed restrictions on travel and mass gatherings, Motorcycling Australia (MA) and Oyster Bay Motorcycle Club (OBMCC) have made the tough decision to postpone Rounds 5 and 6 at Nowra, NSW, of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship.
The further restriction recommended by the Australian Government and imposed by the NSW Government have now made it impossible for the event to continue.
The Yamaha AORC is a significant championship for MA and OBMCC and we have worked hard to find solutions to enable the championship to continue.
However, it has now become very difficult for riders, teams and officials to travel during this time and now many companies have placed restrictions on travel and a number of medical services required for the event have become too limited for the event to operate.
