After another great year of high quality competition around the country, the AORC has now wrapped up and as the dust settles, let’s have a look at the wash up!
The Barossa Valley, and the Keyneton MCC, had double success with Peter Rudd in Vets and Charlie Milton in J3 both recording solid results all Series, with Peter having a win at Broken Hill and 2 other podium finishes, while Charlie, in his first AROC, recorded constant improvement as the year went on, going from 6th & 7th placings to 2nd & 3rd by seasons end to claim a first up podium!
Michael Widdison had a cracker of a season, with 2 wins and 4 second placings, but missing 3 rounds really coast him and he also had to settle for the final step on the podium!
