NASR Receives CAMS 2011 Delegation Offer for Speedway
For Immediate Release
prospective motorsports for 2011.
NASR General Manager Dale Gilson stated “it came as no surprise for NASR to be offered the delegation once
again this year. Having now been involved in 2 CAMS delegation presentations in 2009 and 2010, NASR has come a long way and we have enjoyed the opportunity to showcase to CAMS all the new projects and initiatives we have put in place from year to year.
“People only need to look at the 2010 Speedway Racing Handbook which was sent directly to over 10,000
licence holders, tracks and stakeholders, to see the level of service and products provided by the national body. NASR not only provides insurance for tracks and licence holders, but offers track safety grants, club development grants, high profile events such as the World Series Sprintcars and National Super Sedan series, and SMS competitions with overseas trips as prizes.
"Technology wise, we offer assistance with club websites and NASR even has an iPhone App to further enhance the spectator experience. Add that to the NASR Rising Star Program run through the Australian Institute of Sport and NASR is supporting all levels of speedway. In 2011 we will do even more!
"CAMS recognise this, and offered NASR the delegation once again.”
However, NASR, ANDRA and AKA are yet to sign the yearly agreement with CAMS and negotiations continue.
Gilson stated “each year NASR pays a significant fee for the CAMS delegation, and it is regulary debated whether it is value for money. All three motorsport bodies have seen the fee more than double this year, which took us all by surprise, and at this stage there has been no additional value offered by CAMS for this increase.
"CAMS have stated it is the FIA that has changed their fee structure which has flowed onto NASR, AKA and ANDRA. Based on this, the NASR Board is determining whether NASR licence holder fees could be better utilised elsewhere.
"We will continue to meet with CAMS, observe the position of the AKA and ANDRA and then make a decision whether we wish to continue delegating with CAMS. At the end of the day it has to represent value for money, and that will be the determining factor.”
