Motorsport's mighty impact revealed

24-Nov-2014  Tracey Button

Did you know Australian motor sport contributes $2.7 Billion to the Australian economy?

This and other important statistics have come from an independent report commissioned by the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS), the custodian of motor sport in Australia.

CAMS has today made public findings from the report into the economic impact of motor sport in Australia, compiled by multinational professional services firm Ernst & Young.

CAMS commissioned the report last year and CAMS President Andrew Papadopoulos is proud to reveal to the Australian public the exciting nature of its contents, which show Australian motor sport to be the silent achiever.

Papadopoulos stated: “We wanted to know what the total impact of the industry is so we can better advocate on behalf of clubs, venues, members, and the industry. CAMS is the administrator, developer, promoter and regulator of four wheeled motor sport in Australia and we felt it was time to finally confirm our long held belief about just how much motor sport matters financially.”
