Australia’s motorsport body, CAMS, has announced its board members have met to discuss the nation’s GT vehicle classifications. Last month, the ruling body announced that GT3 and GT4 would be eligable for the Australian GT Championship and the Bathurst 12 Hour only, whilst the cars would now be ineligible for club and state level events. The Board initially met on 14 June, discussed the matter and sought further information before meeting again last night.
CAMS has therefore determined that the document issued on the 5 June, 2017 dealing with the classification of GT vehicles is rescinded with immediate effect.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.
