#Active8 Yamaha’s Tom McCormack and Josh Green turned in impressive performances at rounds seven and eight of the Australian Off Road championship (AORC) held at Coonawarra, South Australia, over the weekend.
McCormack impressed with his best weekend of the season taking the E1 (250Cc) class double, winning on both days and extending his lead in the E1 championship. McCormack excelled in the conditions and posted good results outright, claiming ninth and sixth respectively on his YZ250F.
“The weekend went well for me and I was able to win on both days. The sandy conditions are similar to what I ride in at Byron Bay so I felt right at home and enjoyed the weekend. The bike was awesome all weekend and it was a good weekend for the team all round,” McCormack said.
Josh Green also flew the Active8 Yamaha flag with pride taking fourth outright on both days on his YZ450F. Green battled hard all weekend and consolidated his place in the top three of the championship after right rounds and is within striking distance of the outright championship lead .
“I was in contention all weekend which was good. After being sick for Finke, it’s nice to feel fit when turning up to an event and know that you have the fitness to race at your best. Only 13 points separate the top three in the championship and with four rounds to go, so things are pretty tight and a strong finish at the remaining rounds will be the difference,” Green explains.
Stefan Granquist holds down second in the E3 championship after eight rounds after a solid weekend in South Australia. Mounted on his WR450F, Granquist was 12th on Saturday and 11th on Sunday Outright and was in the top three both days in class.
