CAMS to take immediate action in response to Porsche Carrera Cup withdrawal

The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) has received formal notification from Porsche Cars Australia (PCA) that the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia Championship has been withdrawn for 2009.

CAMS has had a strong and open working relationship with PCA since the inception of Porsche Carrera Cup Australia in 2003 and will take immediate action in response to the withdrawal.

CAMS CEO Graham Fountain said the decision was disappointing but understandable.

"While this announcement is extremely disappointing, we understand that the harsh economic climate has had a major influence on the ability for Carrera Cup teams to commit to the series and we extend our full support on what would have been a difficult decision for PCA to reach," said Fountain.

"Carrera Cup has grown in popularity over the past six years and has developed steadily to become a prominent support category in Australia.

"CAMS remains committed to supporting the category moving forward and is hopeful that the Championship will return in the near future.

"In the interim we will work with the relevant categories in an endeavour to secure an opportunity for the existing owners of 997 GT3 Cup Cars to run in other categories."

Urgent meetings with PCA and the relevant categories will be convened by CAMS early next week to progress this opportunity.
