CAMS produce the bible of motor sport each year – 2013 MANUAL OF MOTOR SPORT that details every aspect of the sport from administration to car construction and safety requirements. Confederation of Australian Motor Sport is vested with the authority to conduct motor sport in Australia by the Federation Internationale de L’Automobile (FIA) in accordance with its rules and regulations. Check out the CAMS Manual.
General Safety Tips
The MX-5 was well designed so before you consider any modifications make real sure that you understand what you are contemplating. A previos Sporting Secretary, Dennis Hawkins, prepared some General Safety Tips following his years of motor sport experience.
Roll-bars will be required for all open cars. These need not be CAMS compliant but will be left to the discretion of race scrutineers to determine whether the roll-bar adequately provides the required protection for the driver. This will be included in the Supplementary Regulations. (Note: Members who wish to compete in motorsport without having to fit a roll bar should try entering the Hill Climbs or Motorkhanas. Roll bars are not required at all in Motorkhanas and are only needed in Hill Climbs for state or national championships. It can be a good way for people to have some fun in a safe environment without the need to modify their pride and joy.
Fire Extinguishers now have a 3yr currency period from the date on the bottle;
All first time Sprinters will need to show their current membership card and CAMS license and be wearing appropriate clothing and a compliant helmet.
