Australian Historic Motor Sport Commission

The Australian Historic Motor Sport Commission (AHMSC) is a body appointed by the Board of CAMS to manage historic motor sport and advise on all related matters. 

It is responsible for all historic matters and the advancement of the interests of historic enthusiasts and competitors. It is empowered by CAMS to produce and manage the historic business plan in accordance with the AHMSC Policy Statement and within parameters defined by CAMS. 

One aspect of the Commission’s activities is dealing with the eligibility of historic cars. For this purpose, the Commission has established the Historic Eligibility Committee (HEC) and Historic Production-based Eligibility Committee (HPBEC). Each State has resident Eligibility Officers whose job, in the first instance, is to inspect and categorise all cars for which application has been made for an Historic Log Book and Certificate of Description. 

All the members of the AHMSC and the Eligibility Committees serve on a voluntary basis and do so solely in the interests of regulating and fostering historic racing and other events involving historic cars.
