Peter Boylan To Run Wakefield Round of PROCAR Champ Series

Round six of the PROCAR Champ Series will go ahead as planned at Wakefield Park, New South Wales, on 6-8 August under the temporary management of businessman Peter Boylan.

Mr Boylan confirmed today he had been given approval by the motorsport governing body CAMS to stage the event, following the decision this week of PROCAR Australia Pty Ltd to relinquish to CAMS all management rights and related intellectual property and trade marks for its categories, Nations Cup, GT Performance, Production Cars and V8 BRutes.

He said was reviewing his options and could not say at this stage whether he had any interest in further long-term involvement in the series, should CAMS decide to seek new operators.

Mr Boylan staged the third (Sandown), fourth (Winton) and fifth (Eastern Creek) rounds of the series under an interim arrangement with PROCAR Australia, following the company's announcement on April 23 that it was ceasing its motor racing operations.

"The response from competitors, sponsors, track operators, media and everyone else to our staging of the past three rounds has been overwhelmingly positive and very gratifying," Mr Boylan said.

"Despite the earlier setbacks, the PROCAR Champ Series continues to have a solid foundation and tremendous potential as one of Australia's most popular national motor racing series.

"Its future is now in the hands of CAMS and I have every confidence in their ability to achieve a stable and successful outcome."

The PROCAR Champ Series round at Wakefield Park will feature a 14-race program on Sunday 8 August, comprising the Nations Cup, GT Performance, Production Cars, V8 BRutes, Formula 3 and Porsche Challenge national championships.
