The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport has signed off on an agreement to continue its involvement in the organisation of the Korean Grand Prix.
CAMS played an instrumental role in the organisation of the first two Korean Grands Prix, including conducting a comprehensive officials training program and operational assistance on the ground at the Yeongam venue.
In 2012 a total of 39 Australian officials will travel to the Korea International Circuit during race week, while CAMS will again provide a range of training modules to Korean marshals with a view to equipping event organisers to be entirely self-sufficient in the running of the Grand Prix from 2014.
Earlier this year, CAMS came to a similar agreement with the Russian Grand Prix organisers, who will stage their inaugural event in 2014. It follows involvement with the Bahrain, Malaysian, Singapore and Abu Dhabi Grands Prix in the past.
In addition to its work in Russia, CAMS is currently embarking on motor sport officials training in The Philippines, Serbia, Sri Lanka, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Trinidad & Tobago.
David Morgan, CEO, CAMS, says the continued strong relationship with the Korean Grand Prix is an indication of the quality of work provided by Australian motor sport officials.
“CAMS is quickly developing a reputation for providing very high standards of officiating and training,” said Mr Morgan.
“Our continued involvement in the organisation, and the development of the Korean Grand Prix as an event is just one example of this.
“We are seeing from the amount of interest out there, and the recommendations coming from those we work with, that Australian motor sport officials operate at world’s best practice.
“I am sure that the Australians involved in these programs will continue to demonstrate the high level of expertise that CAMS officials are recognised for.”
The Korean Grand Prix will be held on 12-14 October
