Ruprecht Wins E1 AORC Championship

Active8 Yamalube Yamaha’s Wil Ruprecht has won the 2017 Australian Off Road Championship (AORC) in the E1 (250cc) division, with a round to spare, after another impressive performance at round 11 of the championship, held at Omeo, Victoria.

Ruprecht entered the final weekend’s racing with a comfortable points margin and needed nothing more than a well-constructed weekend of racing to close out the championship but Ruprecht didn’t opt for the conservative route. He took the bull by the horns and snared the round win and with it earn enough points to claim the championship with one round remaining.

“My goal at the start of the year was to win this championship and to get it done today feels awesome,” Ruprecht explains. “The team and I have worked really hard this year and I can’t thank everyone at the Active8 Yamaha team for their support and belief in me.

“It wasn’t easy as we had to overcome some hurdles but that’s part of managing a championship and I learned a lot this year and developed as a rider.

“Thank you to the clubs and promoters of each round for their part in running this championship as well as everyone at Yamaha and our team sponsors for the support. I look forward to enjoying the final round tomorrow and ride with no pressure and just take in the day,” Ruprecht ends.

The 12th and final round of the 2017 Australian Off Road championship will take place tomorrow at a cold Omeo with a full weekend’s report to follow in the coming days.
