Wilson Remains Queen of AORC

Jemma Wilson has retained her position as queen of Australian off road motorcycle racing after clinching another championship victory at the final rounds of the AORC wrapped up at Omeo, Victoria on the weekend.

Despite a massive workload between racing and her University studies, Queensland based Wilson still proved to be the one to beat in the Women’s division in 2017 winning all but two rounds of this years’ championship and stamping her name in the elite of women’s racing in Australia.

On board her YZ250FX, Jemma was simply a cut above her rivals for the major of the year but the final two rounds weren’t just a formality as she experienced some problems in Saturday’s X-Country event and finished in seventh for the round.

But she rebounded strongly at the final round to take the win and ice what has been another successful campaign for her.

“There were times this year when I thought I had bit of more than I could chew between racing and Uni,” she begins. “I have really had to manage my time as well as I could and there have been times during the year when I have really found it tough. On the Friday nights before the rounds, I have been in my motel studying when I used to be drawing or going over special tests but I’m really proud to have won it again as it wasn’t easy to achieve.

“There have also been a lot of people who have helped and supported me this year, so thank you to everyone that has been a part of my success and also Yamaha for their support of me and also off road racing.

“Now that this is ticked off the list, it’s time to look towards the ISDE in France where our Women’s team can continue our good run of success at that event,” Wilson ends.
