Motorcycling Australia (MA) has released the 2015 Australian Off-Road Championship calendar, to be supported by Yamaha Motor Australia once again in the new year.

Next year’s championship kicks off in Queensland in March before rolling through to Victoria, South Australia, back to Queensland and the final four rounds will take place in New South Wales.

“Yamaha are excited to again be major sponsors for one of Australia’s premier motorcycling championships,” Yamaha motorsport 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. We’re looking forward to working with the AORC team for another successful year.”

Championship coordinator Denise Hore expressed her thanks to Yamaha for its continued support.

“We’re very thankful to Yamaha Australia for their extremely generous support of the AORC,” she said. “Without their generosity there is no way the AORC could continue in its current format, each year our partnership with Yamaha gets better and better and we can’t wait to see what 2015 will bring.”

The presentation night for next season will take place on 16 August at Riverwood Downs in New South Wales.
