AORCOM makes Specific Requirements changes

Ahead of the 2024 Tatts Finke Desert Race, the Australian Off Road Commission (AORCOM) has multiple changes to the Specific Requirements regulations surrounding the SXS Pro class.

The regulation changes have been made in relation to fuel rails and fittings as well as the maximum permitted outside tyre to outside tyre measurement on any competing vehicle in order to accommodate to Can-Am Maverick R.

Increased from 2000mm to 2100mm, the adjustment of the permitted width will now allow the new Can-am Maverick R to be eligible to compete in future BFGoodrich Motorsport Australia Off Road Championship (AORC) events.

As for the fuel rails and fittings, the featured fuel pumps, their location and number of pumps, their location and number of pumps will now be free, while the fuel injectors themselves must be original components.

These changes are relevant to naturally aspirated vehicles with an engine capacity not exceeding 1200cc and supercharged/turbocharged vehicles with an engine capacity not exceeding 2050c.
