The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) is a not-for-profit member-based organisation focused on the development, regulation and administration of motor sport across Australia.
CAMS have been the overseer of motorsport in Australia since 1953. The organisation is the Australian delegated national sporting authority (ASN) by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the governing body for world motor sport and the federation of the world’s leading motoring organisations; a responsibility CAMS has held since 1958.
The FIA is also the governing body for motor sport worldwide. It administers the rules and regulations for all international four-wheeled motor sport including the FIA Formula One World Championship, FIA World Rally Championship and FIA World Touring Car Championship. The FIA aims to ensure that motor sport is conducted in accordance with the highest standards of safety, fairness and social responsibility. So that the above standards may be exercised in a fair and equitable manner the FIA has drawn up the “International Sporting Code” (the Code). CAMS, together with in excess of 120 other ASNs in over 100 nations, are committed to carrying out the mission of the FIA. As such CAMS is responsible for the regulation and organisation of motor sport across Australia consistent with FIA regulations and processes.
In many countries the ASN is also the body recognised for all motoring activities, including sporting and touring. However in some countries, including Australia, the sporting power and touring authority are held by separate and independent bodies. The FIA’s touring affiliate in Australia since 1972 is the Australian Automobile Association (AAA). CAMS, in partnership with the AAA, delivers the FIA’s objectives and programs across Australia.
CAMS is also the recognised National Sporting Organisation (NSO) for motor sport by the Commonwealth Government via the Australian Sports Commission (ASC).
The staff at CAMS takes much pride in their work, assisting the organisation in striving to achieve its core purpose of the administration, development, promotion and regulation of motor sport in Australia.
CAMS staff are dedicated in their approach to CAMS' Vision as part of the Strategic Plan 2017-2019, which is to advance and grow motor sport for Australian participants at all levels as the trusted custodian, developer and facilitator of sustainable, safe and fair sport.
As part of our ongoing commitment to providing all our members, volunteers, clubs and other stakeholders with service excellence, CAMS has created a list of its core values.
There are four pillars: Respect, Excellence, Accountability, Pride.
