CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship
The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) is proud to have formed a major partnership with Jayco, Australia’s most recognised brand of Caravans and recreational vehicles.
Jayco is the major sponsor of the inaugural Formula 4 championship, to now be known as the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship, as part of a three year agreement.
Formula 4 has been created by motor sport’s world governing body, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), as part of the newly aligned pathway from karting to Formula 1. It is designed for drivers aged 15 years and over.
Jayco Chairman Gerry Ryan believes it is a good fit for Jayco, to be supporting young talented Australians aspiring to be the best that they can be on the world stage.
“Jayco is a very proud supporter of Australian sport, so when the opportunity arose to support CAMS, Australian motor sport and young Australians by becoming part of this new and exciting formula, we simply could not say no,” Ryan said.
“This is an investment in the future of Australian motor sport as the stars of tomorrow will come from this new championship. I hope that the young elite drivers who compete in the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship go on to do great things. Who knows? Maybe one of the drivers will go on to become Australian world champion like Sir Jack Brabham or Alan Jones one day, now that would be something special!”
“At Jayco, we have a great range of products that are perfect for families who enjoy motor sport, whether they be traveling to compete in karting or at club level or fans camping at major events, so this partnership will be really beneficial from a business perspective too.”
Established in 1975, Jayco is Australia’s favourite Caravan manufacturer, employing more than 1,000 Australians as a locally owned family business.
