The CAMS Victorian State Council has issued an open invitation to all CAMS rally competitors 
and officials to an open meeting on Tuesday, February 12 at 8pm, 
at the Victorian Rover Centre, situated at Highland Avenue, Clayton 

As an Advisory Panel to the Victorian State Council, the VRAP is
charged with overseeing and administering safe and socially
responsible CAMS-sanctioned rallying within Victoria, including the 
Victorian Rally Championship and the Victorian Club Rally Series, the 
Rally Permit Scheme, and assisting CAMS liaise with DSE, Police and 
local government.

The meeting of the Victorian Rally Advisory 
Panel (VRAP), will be encompassed within this open meeting. The term 
of the 2007 VRAP has been extended to provide continuity of services 
until this open meeting, where part of the meeting will be devoted to 
proposing a Chairman for the 2008 CAMS Victorian Rally Advisory Panel 
(VRAP), and receive nominations from people keen to be Panel members.

The meeting is also an opportunity for the Victorian rally fraternity 
to collectively discuss where they would like to see the sport within 
CAMS advancing in Victoria in 2008.

It is hoped this discussion will 
include how the State Council and the VRAP will continue to work 
together to deliver:

• Improved lines of communication with ARCom and CAMS; 

• Continued improvement in the National Officiating Program to 
meet the needs of rallying;

• Ongoing negotiation within all levels of Government to 
sustain and improve access to Public Land on which to conduct rallies;

• Finalised Rally Permit Scheme with VicRoads for the benefit 
of CAMS members;

• Access to monies levied to legitimately replace equipment / 
infrastructure for use at CAMS sanctioned rally events;

• Greater flexibility, use and interest gathering methods in 
the structure of rally fund accounts held by CAMS.

Another very important matter, which will assist to facilitate the 
above and put it into the context of advances at National level is 
the attendance of Col Trinder, the new ARCom Chairman at the meeting. 

ARCom is undertaking a strategic plan for rallying, and as Col 
Trinder was already planning a strategy and `open' feedback session 
in each of the States, this open meeting presented an excellent 
opportunity for ARCom to engage directly with the Victorian rally 

ARCom is keen to consult with the Victorian rally 
community, and hear opinion from the floor.

The CAMS Victorian State Council looks to a committed VRAP to work 
with and on behalf of CAMS Members and Clubs, to maintain and grow 
the strength of rallying at a club level.

Your voice as part of the 
CAMS rally community to foster that strength is desired.
