Active8 Yamaha’s Josh Green and AJ Roberts came out on top of their respective classes at today’s round six of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC), held at Corner Inlet, Victoria.
Green, 22, from Nelson Bay (NSW) won the hotly contested Championship E2 Class by about 30-seconds after six sprint laps aboard his WR450F.
“After my Outright win yesterday and my class win today, I couldn’t ask for a much better weekend,” Green said.
“It was an awesome track and a good set up. The track was really tough after getting chewed up yesterday so it made for a good, challenging event and I like that.
“I’m looking forward to the next rounds of the AORC and hopefully gaining some more points towards the championship.
“I’m sitting third Outright now behind Daniel Milner and Chris Hollis… we’ve got a bit of a break again until the South Australian rounds, but I’ll be keeping busy.
“We are driving straight to Alice Springs now to get ready for the Finke Desert Race, which is being held on the June long weekend – in two weeks’ time.
“This will be my first Finke and I’m super excited. I want to achieve a good, solid position – qualify well and get down and back safely.”
Roberts, 30, from Ningi (QLD) finished first in Championship E3 by about 10-seconds, ahead of a second-placed Geoff Braico.
The team’s Championship E1 rider, Tom McCormack, finished just shy of the podium in his class, coming fourth and 10th Outright.
