“Cam is one of the best known drivers on the circuit and we’re delighted for him to be an ambassador for our product,” he told

“He is terrific to work with and we’re pleased to have him represent us.

“It’s a very unique product and the first time that a package like this that has been to the Australian racing market.”

Affinity Motorsport Insurance provides insurance for race vehicles – on and off the track. It covers testing days, personal accident insurance for the drivers and also transit risk for the cars.

McConville says that he will use his role to educate all motor racing drivers on the importance of insurance.

“Drivers don’t really understand the need for insurance,” McConville said.

“For me, I race cars, but I also do 40-odd drive days. I see my role with Affinity to educate other drivers in any category in Australia about the importance of insurance.

“Affinity now has a package that can suit any level of race drivers in any category.” comment policy
