The Cobbs and Co Hotel St George 399 is Round 1 of the BF Goodrich Australian Off Road Championship and takes place in St George.
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.
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.
