CAMS Statement: Lake Mountain Sprint Rally clarification
- 28th March 2017, 1:12am
The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS), in response to recent media claims concerning the serious incident involving Grant Denyer and Dale Moscatt at the Lake Mountain Sprint Rally, would like to clarify the following:
* The Lake Mountain Sprint Rally is not a CAMS sanctioned event.
* The Australian Tarmac Rally Championship is not an authorised series or championship of CAMS.
* CAMS has previously expressed concerns about this and similar events with regard to the safety standards applicable to such high risk activities on public roads.
* CAMS remains concerned with high risk motor sport events that are not permitted by CAMS.
* Victoria Police have apparently indicated that they will not investigate this matter as it was under the mistaken impression that this was a CAMS sanctioned event. Given that this is not a CAMS permitted event, we would welcome a thorough investigation by the Police of the incident given that CAMS will not be given access to important accident data and information by the event organiser.
CAMS places a priority on upholding a high level of safety standards, in particular at rally events, to ensure the safety of competitors, spectators and officials, and to protect the integrity of Australian motor sport.
