An extraodinary meeting will be held at the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) Victorian office tonight (November 30) to discuss a motion which asks for a total spill of the entire CAMS Board.

The meeting is a result of a great deal of unrest over the Board’s performance and their intention to suppress the publication of records of Board meetings.

It follows a previous motion which was put during a meeting of the Victorian Sport and Club Development Council in October at which delegates requested formal advice from CAMS’ legal advisors on what process was available by which the Sport and Development Council could refer to the Australian Sports Commission its concerns about particular actions by the Board.

It is claimed that it is the policy of the Board not to release meetings of minutes, rather, to provide a statement of the resolutions.

The first of these motions, as described above, resulted in an overwhelming majority, there being 16 votes for the motion with one against and two abstentions.

Later in the October meeting a second motion was put calling for a total spill of Board members. The motion that was put, and for which 11 members voted for the motion, six were against and two members abstained, complained of “their (the Board’s) collective inability to adequately engage their clientele, failure to adequately manage the brief of the sport, and to understand the industry in such a way as to advance motorsport”.

Tonight’s meeting will be chaired by VSCDC chairman, David Bellenger. CAMS President, Andrew Papadopoulos, and CAMS CEO, Graham Fountain, will address the meeting.
