The 2019 South Australian Off Road Championship is now taking shape for 2019 with 2019 to be a 7 round Championship, with the final 2 rounds to be run in conjunction with rounds 9 & 10 of the 2019 Australian Off Road Championship, which for 2019 is centred firmly in the South & East of the state!
2019 will see 4 Clubs run the rounds, with the Juventus kicking off the Championship at an all time favourite venue for many riders, Mount Crawford Forest, with it, at this stage, down to run in the sprint format.
Rounds 2 and 3 will also head to a favourite venue of the Series, with Ariel once again hosting in the sands of Wanbi, with a split round of Seniors having an enduro format on Saturday, with the Juniors enjoying a sprint, with the reverse happening on day 2!
Rounds 4 & 5 head down to Keith, the reigning MSA Club of the Year, and they are planning for round 4 to be a cross country for all, with round 5 to be a sprint, and once again, for juniors & seniors.
The final 2 rounds of the SAORC for 2019, and also the AORC rounds, will head to Coonalpyn, and likely more sand, with the Gawler MCC hosting a sprint format on both days to finish the 2019 Championship.
