The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) has limited direct influence on the athletes that can contribute to Winning Edge targets in international events. Instead, the AIS investment in CAMS is directed to the development pathway. The appointment of a driver development manager is a significant step in improving the driver pathway, tracking potential elite drivers, as well as improving coaching.

CAMS’ governance structure complies with many of the ASC’s mandatory governance principles. Areas for improvement include implementing a nominations committee and an audit and risk committee. Board diversity will be important in the longer term.

Despite staffing changes, most projects in the participation area are progressing. There was a continued focus on club development and increasing junior participation, with JRACE being finalised and rolled out in Victoria. Focuses for 2014 include the development of a participation and development plan and the implementation of a new database to improve data integrity.
