SEPTEMBER 27, 2001:

TOCA Australia today announced that it would not proceed with the organisation of the 2001-02 Australian Super Touring Championship and has relinquished its rights to manage the category in Australia.

"The Board has considered all matters in reaching this very difficult decision," said TOCA Australia Chief Executive Kelvin O'Reilly

"We regret that this decision has had to be made but the surrounding circumstances and the commercial climate make it unavoidable."

"As there are numerous cars that are eligible for competition in both Super Touring and Future Touring specification the field is now open for the governing body CAMS or another category manager to organise these events."

Power Tour organiser Nick Ebbeck last week extended an invitation to the Super Touring/Future Touring teams and Commodore Cup competitors to race at their next event, which is scheduled for Winton on 21 October.
