Mr Graeme Emerton, Chairman of the Australian Motor Race Commission, was delighted with the outcome of negotiations.
"The Australia Motor Race Commission, along with members of the CAMS Administration, has gone through an extensive and inclusive process with all parties to come up with what we believe is an exciting and effective motor racing series.
"The entire process of establishing this motor race series has taken longer than we expected but the Australian Motor Race Commission felt it was important to give all parties a solid foundation to ensure the on going development of each of the categories involved."
Mr Rod Dale, Director of the Australian Motor Race Series said, "While the negotiation process was a hard and long road, we are happy with the destination.
"It was our objective to have a competitively priced national series for all categories involved. We also wanted to give event promoters a viable option to host an alternative national event. We are confident that the Australian Motor Racing Series will grow each year."
