GasGas and youthful Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) contender Korey McMahon will continue together throughout 2023, set to contest a range of key events throughout the upcoming season.

McMahon will continue will again receive GasGas backing in 2023, set to ‘Get On The Gas’ in the AORC, Australian Four-Day Enduro (A4DE), Hattah Desert Race, Finke Desert Race and GNCC Australia races.

The 21-year-old has been GasGas-mounted since the 2021 season, switching to the EC 250F last year to compete with success in the E1 category at the national level. He finished a solid second in class in the 2022 AORC E1 class point-standings, impressively standing on the podium during nine of the 10 rounds contested and building upon that momentum into the new season.

He also competed in the Finke Desert Race, finishing a fine fourth outright and top of the 450cc entrants onboard his MC 450F, and was a member of Team Australia’s third-placed Junior World Trophy Team at the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE).

“I’m really comfortable onboard the GasGas now, it was my first year back on the 250 last year, so I feel like we’ve learnt a little bit more about the bike and how the set-up works, “McMahon explained. “It’s been a good transition though and I feel like we will enter this year even better prepared! I’m excited to be back with GasGas for another season, I have been with the brand for a few years now, working with the same people and am pumped for the year to come!”

The first race of McMahon’s 2023 season is the AORC season-opener scheduled for Mendooran, NSW, between 25-26 March, where he will continue in E1 with the firm target of achieving championship success.
