A CAMS Competition Licence holder is provided with Personal Accident Insurance coverage while competing at a CAMS permitted event. These sanctioned CAMS events must also adhere to CAMS’ Sporting and Technical Regulations.
It is noteworthy that a CAMS Licence Holder who competes at a non-CAMS sanctioned event is absolutely not covered under CAMS’ usually wide ranging insurance coverage.
CAMS makes no apologies for applying the best of breed safety standards at every level of CAMS sanctioned motor sport events in the country. This philosophy underscores all of our activities in motor sport no matter what the level.
It is indisputable that continuous advancements in relation to areas such as head and neck protection, driver apparel, fire safety, track design and layout, impact protection along with medical/rescue intervention frameworks and techniques have saved the lives of many motor sport competitors over the years.
Further, CAMS affiliation provides clubs, officials and individuals with support provided by CAMS specialist staff in the event of a critical incident. The learnings from past experiences are also applied to constant revisions of CAMS’ regulations and safety standards, which apply to all levels of the sport.
Safety standards improve year-on-year across all facets of motor sport and CAMS draws upon its vast resources via our members, clubs, officials, state bodies, government and university research and of course via our connection to the FIA to develop and implement new safety standards. These improvements seek to ensure our members and participants go home safely at the end of a motor sport event.
CAMS remains firmly committed to developing and ensuring the safety for all participants in motor sport.
