Motorcycling Australia has revealed rounds 10 and 11 of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) have been relocated due to local shire and agricultural restrictions in the Penshurst region.

The final two rounds of the 2019 AORC season will now take place at Hedley in Victoria, while remaining on the same scheduled dates of 14-15 September.

To ensure the least amount of disruption to riders and teams alike, the competition has been amended to ensure the championship continues to successfully incorporate the state of Victorian into the series, while also making a conscious effort to minimise the necessary distance to travel.

The original host club, Geelong Motocross Club, will now co-host rounds 10 and 11 with the Corner Inlet Motorcycle Club, at a familiar venue to the AORC.

To close off the 2019 racing season, Hedley will feature a Cross Country racing format for round 10, followed by a Sprint format for round 11.
