The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) has released the sporting regulations for the CAMS Australian Formula 4 Championship. These regulations will set the parameters of the championship for its inaugural season in 2015 and beyond.
Following the historic announcement for Australian motor sport in relation to the new open wheel pathway formula, CAMS has released the regulations as soon as practicable given the strong level of interest shown in the new formula to date.
CAMS General Manager of Motor Sport Development Cameron McConville said, that after providing details of the format and scheduling features in recent weeks, the next logical step was to release the sporting regulations to assist teams and competitors planning to participate in the championship to understand the rules.
“With a new formula comes a new set of regulations and being mindful of the key directives from the FIA, that being to ensure a fair and competitive series with costs kept to a minimum, we have released the sporting regulations so that those who are preparing themselves to compete in the championship are aware of these and other factors that drive Formula 4 globally. The technical regulations for the championship will follow.” McConville said.
Among the regulations is further clarification on the significant reward the winner of the CAMS Australian Formula 4 Championship will receive.
The winner of the Drivers’ Championship will secure a significant financial contribution towards the costs of competing in an overseas series, which will be selected by the driver in consultation with CAMS. The contribution is to the value of $250,000 if twenty or more cars take the grid to compete in the championship.
The regulations also stipulate that to be eligible for the development prize, the driver must be an Australian citizen and under the age of 19 years on 1 January 2015. To compete in Formula 4 drivers must be age 15, also by the date of the first round of the championship.

McConville took the opportunity of this announcement to remind those interested in participating in next year’s championship that registrations are now open and places are filling fast, ahead of a closing date of 28 November, 2014.
“We urge teams or competitors to register now as there has been strong interest to date. We would be disappointed if anyone who was considering being part of this exciting venture was to miss out, as essentially Australian motor sport history is being created here. It’s something to look forward to that’s for sure.” McConville said.
