What is the CAMS Anti-Doping Policy?
The CAMS Anti-Doping Policy is a set of regulations that outline various restrictions and obligations of motor sport participants in relation to the use and administration of substances (sometimes referred to as ‘drugs’ or ‘supplements’) and methods that are prohibited under the World Anti-Doping Code’s Prohibited List. The purpose of the policy is to protect any motor sport participant’s fundamental right to participate in a doping-free sport and thus promote health, fairness, equality and safety in motor sport.
The policy is by its nature, very intricate and detailed, as it attempts to account for every foreseeable situation in a potential doping occurrence. Additionally, the policy is an integral component of the National Competition Rules and has very specific and severe penalties for breaches.
For any enquiries relating to the CAMS Anti-Doping Policy or general anti-doping matters, please contact the CAMS Integrity Officer at [email protected] or 03 9593 7777.

Doping Control (Testing)
CAMS contracts the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) to conduct testing at certain events throughout the year. Testing is done primarily by collecting urine samples however ASADA do have the authority and ability to take blood samples if they so wish.
Specific details of the amount of testing to be undertaken, the events at which testing will take place and the competitors who will be subjected to testing cannot be disclosed in advance to protect the integrity of the testing program.
