CAMS completes transition to Motorsport Australia

CAMS completes transition to Motorsport Australia
January 8, 2020

With the former Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS) having changed its trading name to Motorsport Australia as of 1st January, the adoption of the new brand is nearly complete.

As announced at last year’s Bathurst 1000, the change aims to bring the organisation into line with many other peak sporting bodies and further improve motorsport’s standing in Australia to a new audience, highlighting its work to governments and corporate partners around the country.

Explaining the change, a Motorsport Australia statement advises “the role of the organisation has significantly changed in recent years.

“No longer does CAMS just issue licences and organise officials (and) like all governing bodies (now) there many varied roles across all disciplines and are responsible for running a number of events and Championships, like the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships, the Motorsport Australia Rally Championship and the Motorsport Australia Off Road Championship to name just three.”

One of the most noticeable changes sees a new website - - now operating with anyone visiting the former site being now automatically redirected to the new site.

Motorsport Australia emphasises that:

• Licence holders do not need a new licence issued on 1st January, as licences expire in 2020, with holders to receive a new Motorsport Australia branded licence upon renewal
• Logbooks remain current and do also not need to be replaced, stickers will be available to cover the existing CAMS logo with Motorsport Australia branding
• Any insurance cover issued through CAMS into 2020 also remains current and automatically carries over to Motorsport Australia on 1st January

The body adds “we understand that the CAMS logo may remain on existing signage in early 2020, as this is a transition period we will work with affiliated clubs and venues to ensure these are changed as necessary.”

Meanwhile, Motorsport Australia House, the new national office in the Melbourne suburb of Canterbury which also features a physical home for the Australian Motor Sport Hall of Fame, was recently opened following the sale of the organisation’s old Malvern East headquarters.

Motorsport Australia added “the storied history of CAMS will certainly not be forgotten in this changeover, with this history a key part of everything Motorsport Australia will be about in 2020 and beyond.

“This includes the new Motorsport Australia logo which has utilised part of the CAMS branding as a tribute to our long and decorated history.”
