CAMS Apparel changes reminder

Remember to double check your apparel including suits, helmets, balaclava's and shoes and make sure they are in line with the CAMS Manual Schedule D Apparel.



In particular please be aware of the Helmet standard changes announced by CAMS in early March 2016 (CAMS Bulletin on Helmets March 2016). CAMS have advised TARGA that: 

“These changes were due to changes with the accepted Helmet Standards for Motor Sport, most notably the removal of the acceptance of the base British Standard, which is similar to the Australian Standard. Whilst some branded helmets are only applied the British Standards this was the decision of the Helmet manufacturer at the time and it is a shame that these Helmet manufacturers in the past did not seek to have the world recognised Snell Standard applied to their helmets as well. Any issue with a helmet standard, as applied by a manufacturer to a helmet, should be directed to them. CAMS does not apply a Helmet standard to a particular Helmet, our role is to apply the Standards that are accepted for Motor Sport and in this case for a National Level Rally whereby the use of FHR is compulsory. This decision was not taken lightly and in some case CAMS are permitting helmet standards that are not accepted by other Motor Sport bodies, such as the recently introduced SNELL SA2015 standard.” 

 This now means that a Helmet with the BS 6658-85 A/FR standard is now considered a Level B Helmet by CAMS and not suited to the Full Competition event.

 Targa Australia events are all specified as a CAMS National Event. This means all safety apparel must be in accordance with National Event requirements and standards as detailed in the Tarmac section of the Rally/Road Table in the CAMS Manual, Schedule D including Frontal Head Restraints. 

Full information can be located on the CAMS website on line. CAMS Manual, General Requirements-Schedule D.

Targa Tasmania 2017 Course


The 2017 Targa Tasmania course will go down in the events history as the most unique course ever run due to the presence of Anzac Day falling on Day 2, instead of the traditional opening day of the event, as it did in 2006. With the change to a Monday to Saturday format in 2015, that was welcomed by all competitors, the course needs to be configured around this and the obvious need to respect the Tasmanian public on this important day of remembrance, by not closing a myriad of roads normally associated with a full day of Targa Tasmania.
