Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing team riders Josh Green and Jarrod Bewley both scored top class finishes at the fifth round of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC), held yesterday at Coonabarabran (NSW).
Green claimed third in Championship E1 at the race, which was the first of two Yamaha AORC rounds being held this weekend at the Gooana Motor Sports Park.
Conditions at the park are dusty and the course is reportedly tight, rutted and technical.

Teammate Jarrod Bewley bagged a podium finish in his class; Championship E2.
Bewley, 24, from Oberon (NSW) was also in the top-10 aboard his all-new WR450F, coming seventh.
