The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport Limited (CAMS) will receive partnership support from retailer Burson Auto Parts to assist grassroots motorsport in Australia, particularly at junior and club level.
CAMS Chief Executive Officer Eugene Arocca said in a statement: “This is great news for our 512 affiliated clubs and tens of thousands of members who take part in motorsport at grass roots level each weekend. This partnership with Burson Auto Parts will underpin our efforts to grow participation by supporting our clubs to develop and grow.”
Burson Auto Parts GM Sales and Marketing Damien Hill added his thoughts about the partnership: “Burson continues to grow and develop as an organisation and working with CAMS will open a number of opportunities to engage our customers – many of whom are motor sport participants and CAMS Members. As an Australian business we are excited to be actively supporting the future of motorsport in this country.”
As part of a grassroots development program, Burson will support the CAMS State Future Star Award. Established in 2014, the Future Star is awarded to a junior CAMS Member from any motor sport discipline who is aged under 21 and has achieved outstanding competition results in a CAMS National Championship.
Burson will also support the CAMS Club Development Fund, along with existing CAMS partners Penrite Oil and Famous Insurance.
