The strengthened partnership marks the 14th consecutive year Yamaha will back the ever-growing off-road series, which will host 11 rounds over six weekends this season.
“Yamaha Motor Australia are pleased to continue our substantial and positive relationships with the Australian Off-Road Championship,” said Yamaha motorsport manager Ray Howard. “2018 was a season full of impressive developments and clear progress, and we are seeing more initiatives in place for the 2019 season.
