Australia’s peak national regulatory bodies across the four key motorsport disciplines – automobile, motorcycle, kart and drag racing – have announced they have joined forces to form the Australian Motorsport Council.
The role of the AMC will be to provide industry wide leadership and advocacy through a national voice for motorsport.
Motorsport Australia, Motorcycling Australia, Karting Australia and the Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) make up the foundation membership of the AMC.
The foundation AMC members – all not-for-profit, membership-based organisations, have a combined history of almost 260 years and currently control, regulate, supervise, promote, licence, permit, insure, develop and manage the overwhelming majority of motorsport in Australia.
Together the AMC members represent over 1000 affiliated Motorsport Clubs, 460 Licenced Racetracks and more than 335,000 active participants including 60,000 licence holders and 18,000 trained Officials across all Australian states and territories.
The Board has plans to meet with all State and Territory governments in the first months of 2021 to introduce the AMC and to highlight immediate policy priorities and seek their support.
