As a company with a heritage of performance and on-road race excellence, we are now embarking on a new off-road journey. Walkinshaw Performance are proud first-time competitors in the 2022 Australian Off Road Championship (AORC). This event is a national off-road competition that has been running for 41 years and comprises of 6 events between March and November 2022. These are all 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.
Walkinshaw Performance is excited to further develop our practical 4WD knowledge and showcase our engineering prowess in this exhilarating competition. We’ve worked day and night to prepare our vehicles for a variety of off-road conditions, including mud, dust, rubble and water. Our engineering team, led by David Kermond, are all exceptionally experienced and knowledgeable in their fields, but preparing our vehicles for this competition has been a very challenging experience, and certainly new territory for the entire team.
We gratefully acknowledge our fantastic range of sponsors for their incredible support and input throughout this competition, most especially their unbounded enthusiasm, wisdom, and practical assistance during the preparation stages. We heartily recommend these businesses to you, having had excellent first-hand experience with them.
