CAMS released details today of an investigation in to the result of last year’s Australian Rally Championship.

“The Confederation of Australia Motor Sport (CAMS) has been investigating claims of competition-fixing at the final round of the Australian Rally Championship, held in Coffs Harbour on 17-20 November 2016.
Following a thorough investigation and critical examination of the evidence involving both Victorian and New South Wales Police, it has been determined that the evidence will not support further action. Specific details about the individuals and teams involved will remain confidential.
This is the first time CAMS has investigated a breach of its National Policy on Competition-Fixing (the Policy) and provides a timely reminder of the ever-present threat of competition-fixing within motor sport.
The Policy was implemented in 2015 to address the threat of competition-fixing within motor sport and the corruption that flows from that. CAMS has a zero tolerance for illegal gambling and competition-fixing, and is committed to protecting motor sport from any efforts to improperly influence the results of any event or competition.
Anyone who has information about competition-fixing by CAMS licenced competitors or officials during motor sport events are encouraged to contact the CAMS Integrity Officer at [email protected] Alternatively, potential breaches of any CAMS integrity policies can be reported anonymously through the Report an Integrity Breach web form.
Free online educational modules have been developed by the Australian Government’s National Integrity of Sport Unit to provide practical tools and strategies to assist competitors, officials and support crews to make appropriate choices when faced with competition issues. These modules can be accessed for free from the CAMS website.”
