Trinder appointed ARCom Chairman for 2008
- 27th November 2007, 7:34pm
Trinder, a member of ARCom since 2002 and Deputy Chairman in 2007, has stood in as Acting Chairman over the past two months.
CAMS President, Colin Osborne, said that Trinder's appointment highlights CAMS' ongoing commitment to supporting the development of rallying at all levels.
"Colin Trinder brings to the position over 30 years of experience covering all aspects of rallying, which has included competing in both gravel and tarmac forms of the sport at all levels, principally as a co-driver.
"He has also been an official, event organiser, team manager, service crew member and served on the Executive of various car clubs for many years, including two terms as President. This has provided Colin with an intimate knowledge and understanding of the issues and challenges facing club level motor sport which was one of the main focus areas of ARCom's recent strategic planning conference, and indeed one of the key selection criteria for the incoming Chairman.
"Coupled with his professional background, CAMS believes that Colin is well placed to lead ARCom and the development of club and state level rallying into the future, and I am confident that this appointment will be welcomed by the Australian rally community," added Osborne.
Trinder is looking forward to tackling the many challenges currently facing rallying in Australia and is keen to continue working with all stakeholders in this pursuit.
"ARCom has certainly made some significant inroads over the past twelve months consulting the rallying community and this need for open and transparent communication between all levels of rallying in Australia will continue to be one of the key priorities throughout my term as Chairman.
"At the same time, I would also like to encourage members of the broader rally community to engage with their local State Rally Panels and ARCom representatives as this is vital in establishing those important lines of communication.
"Another key platform for ARCom will be to make participation in all levels of rallying as straightforward as possible and we look forward to working with the competitors, officials, clubs and event organisers to ensure that we remove any unnecessary impediments in this regard and identify a clear pathway for competitors to be able to make the transition from one level of participation in the sport to the next," concluded Trinder.
