Motorcycling Australia (MA) and the Enduro Commission are pleased to announce Yamaha Australia are again supporting the Australian Off-Road Championship in 2015.

Yamaha’s long standing sponsorship of the Australian Championship continues in to next year after a successful 2014.

A massive contributor to all motorcycle sport in Australia, the Yamaha team are happy to again throw their support behind the AORC.

“Yamaha are excited to again be major sponsors for one of Australia’s premier motorcycling championships.” Yamaha Motorsports Manager, Ray Howard said.

“Australia boasts some of the best Enduro racers in the world and we’re happy to be able to assist in providing a first class championship for them to display their talents at a domestic level.

Championship Coordinator Denise Hore expressed her thanks to Yamaha for their continued support.

“We’re very thankful to Yamaha Australia for their extremely generous support of the AORC.” She said.
