Following a self-nomination process for the 2007 CAMS Rally Driver Development Program and Women's Driver Development Program, a number of Australia's most promising female and rally competitors have been selected to attend two specialist training camps at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS).  

Competitors for both programs had to meet specific assessment criteria, including age, past performance and demonstration of an interest in pursuing an international motor sport career.  

According to CAMS' Member Services and Development Manager, Quentin Crombie, the self nomination process allows young motor sport competitors to be proactive in the management of their careers.  

"We received a large number of applications for both programs this year and after much deliberation we selected those who we believe to be the cream of young and up-and-coming rally and female competitors in Australia. We are hopeful that these competitors will become regulars on the international stage in the foreseeable future."  

The 2007 CAMS Women's Driver Development Program consists of the following squad members:
* Victoria Whitley (Queensland) - Karting
* Jessica Golding (Queensland) - Karting
* Molly Taylor (New South Wales) - Rally
* Kira Douglas (Victoria) - Rally  

The 2007 CAMS Rally Driver Development Program consists of the following squad members:
* Paul Batten (Victoria)
* Glen Raymond (Victoria)
* Mitchell Hall (South Australia)
* Brendan Reeves (Victoria)
* Brendon Thomas (New South Wales)  

The intensive two-day camp will take place at the AIS in Canberra in early March 2007, with both groups scheduled to attend a follow-up camp again in June. The AIS program focuses on elements of nutrition, physiology, psychology, strength and conditioning, and media training.  

CAMS would like to thank the Australian Sports Commission and the Australian Motor Sport Foundation for their support of both programs in 2007.
