AORC back in action this weekend with rounds three and four at Dungog

Dungog, New South Wales geared-up for rounds three and four of the Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) this weekend, April 6-7. 

 

240 riders will tackle two days of enduro racing action at rounds three and four of the AORC 2019 season at Dungog this weekend. Apart from the usual classes this round will also host the start of the Vintage Cup – Evo and Pre-86 – plus the 2 Stroke Cup.

The opening weekend’s AORC action in March saw Daniel Milner fastest overall and in E2, aboard the smaller KTM 350 this season. Daniel Sanders did the opposite and stepped up to the big Husky and dominated the E3 class both days. He did however admit after rounds one and two that he wanted to build up his fitness for Dungog in order to close the gap to Milner and threaten the overall win.

In the E1 class Lyndon Snodgrass will aim to maintain his lead in the championship. Luke Styke is drawn on the same points after the opening rounds in Toowomba. Wacth out too this weekend for the local boy, Michael Driscoll. After his third place in the first round he’ll no doubt have an extra shout or two of support this weekend.
