After a couple of seasons running their events under permits authorised by the Australian Auto Sport Alliance (AASA), the series of Targa events will now be held under the CAMS banner.

The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport  (CAMS) have taken a body blow in recent years, with AASA offering cheaper permit fees and fewer hurdles for clubs and organisations to jump over when organising their events.

However, in a deal that was some time in the making, Targa Tasmania, Targa High Country, Targa Wrest Point and Classic Targa Adelaide will all be CAMS sanctioned events in a move that will be a financial windfall for CAMS.

There are varying opinions on which permit scheme is the better one, but the benefit to motorsport has been that AASA have offered an alternative to CAMS, which for many years was the only outlet for sanctioning events.

That CAMS now have to fight for events is a positive outcome for rallying, and will hopefully provide a better insurance policy for all competitors.
