Less than 80km’s from South Australia’s capital Adelaide, the 2016 Yamaha AORC competitors are set to head to the rural town of Murray Bridge where they will face some of the toughest terrains for another two championship rounds this Saturday and Sunday, April 23-24.

As the championship reaches the half way mark, it is clear the competition is heating up. KTM Enduro Racing Team’s Daniel ‘Chucky’ Sanders remains undefeated outright with four rounds in the books, and will now look to defend himself once again at rounds 5&6 this weekend.

The depth of talent doesn’t stop there either – with Jessica Gardiner taking the round honours at the last AORC outing in the women’s class, while Nic Tomlinson currently leads the AORC Transmoto 19 and Under class championship standings.

With Yamaha’s continued support for the series in 2016 the Yamaha AORC will see championship classes of E1, E2, E3, Women’s, Vets and Transmoto 19’s and Under, as well as SA State Championship athletes, competing in another sprint format two rounds of racing this weekend.

MyLaps (click here) will be recording all the results throughout Rounds 5&6 – so teams, athletes, spectators and fans from anywhere around the country can keep up to date with all of the AORC results.

There will be little phone reception at the Murray Bridge circuit, but you can still keep track of the racing news this weekend, as well as results from each day on the AORC section of the MA website here or ‘liking’ AORC on Facebook.

With the battles for an AORC Championship only just beginning to ramp up, every test will count this weekend.
