The 12-round 2022 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) calendar is now complete, the final dates and location now locked in which will see the season-opening rounds at Cherrabah, Queensland, from 19-20 March.

Mackay will then host rounds three and four before the season meets the halfway point at Kyogle in New South Wales for rounds five and six, followed by South Australia’s Kingston SE for rounds seven and eight.

Rounds nine and 10 will take place in Nowra, NSW, with the championship to conclude at Wynyard in Tasmania on 8-9 October.

Notably absent from the 2022 calendar is Golden Beach, the Victorian-based venue holding the only events of last year’s covid-impacted AORC series.
