BFGoodrich CAMS Australian Off Road Championship

AORC_Logo _Side -By -Side _Pos

The Australian Off Road Championship (AORC) commenced in 1981 and showcases the best off road competitors, cars and events from around the country.

AORC events are defined as ‘long course’ events that are conducted on a track of no less than 15 kilometres in length. The courses and tracks used for the AORC are often narrow, twisting, tree lined tracks, undulating farmland tracks, mountain tracks and river crossings, sometimes incorporating man made jumps and other obstacles.

Off Road cars are some of the most impressively engineered in Australian motor sport and most incorporate complex, long travel suspension systems and powerful engines to enable them to negotiate the rugged, dusty or sometimes muddy terrain they encounter, as fast as possible.

There are a number of different classes of competition with vehicles ranging from purpose built space framed open wheelers with engines up to 6000cc to modified 4WD vehicles. Except for the single seaters, all vehicles consist of a driver/navigator team.

The endurance aspect of the racing makes each course a test of driver and navigator skill and mechanical preparation. Each of these forms a championship in its own right.

Off Roading is an exciting and adrenaline filled discipline of motor sport and is growing in stature with an increasing number of competitors looking to take up the challenge.

Competitors attend these rounds from every state with most events incorporating a round of their State Championship which attracts local competitors, sponsors and spectators.
