CAMS BACKFLIPS ON GT DECISION

CAMS have reversed its decision to stop 2GT classed from running in non-Australian GT sanctioned events.

In a statement issued on Wednesday CAMS stated that a decision to remove the addition to the Sporting Regulations made in early June had been reached after a meeting with competitors.

Auto Action understands that the changes had been met by almost universal disapproval by competitors.

Below is the statement:

Last night, the CAMS Board met to discuss the GT vehicle classifications.

The Board initially met on 14 June, discussed the matter and sought further information before meeting again last night.

CAMS has determined that the document issued on the 5 June, 2017 dealing with the classification of GT vehicles is rescinded with immediate effect. This decision reflects the general principle that mid-season changes to sporting regulations should only occur where safety is an issue.

CAMS will now further canvass and consult with all affected stakeholders, including the GT Championship organisers, drivers and vehicle owners to determine the best way to develop the GT and Sports Cars categories at all levels in Australia.
