War waged at Championships
CHERRABAH Resort at Elbow Valley is the venue for the final round of the 2010 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) this weekend.
While the Motorex KTM Off-Road team have all but tied up the Championship E1, E2 and E3 Class titles, war is still being waged for several of the coveted outright top-10 positions.
Toby Price, of Singleton (NSW), has a 34-point lead in the outright and a 37-point lead for the Yamaha Championship E2 Class.
In Championship Outright, Jarrod Bewley sits second to Price.
Ballard’s Wellard Yamaha’s Stefan Merriman sits fourth, seven points behind Grabham. Only one point separates Queenslanders AJ Roberts (Honda) and Kirk Hutton (Yamaha) for fifth outright, with Roberts currently holding the advantage.
Queensland enduro champion, Kirk Hutton said he was looking forward to racing in his home state.
“I’m glad the Queensland AORC is gonna be at Cherrabah,” Hutton said.
“It’s awesome to stay in a nice motel and have a really good meal and then only have a two-minute drive to the pits the next morning. Cherrabah is a great spot.”
Gates at Cherrabah Resort will open to the public at 9am, Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $5, children under 14 free.
