AGP boss Westacott joins CAMS Foundation
Australian Grand Prix CEO Andrew Westacott has joined the Board of Directors at the CAMS Foundation.
Established in 2004, the CAMS Foundation raises funds to help develop young Australian talent successfully compete across national and international motorsport.
The organisation has offered support to an array of talent including Daniel Ricciardo, Will Power, Chris Atkinson, Molly Taylor, James Courtney, Will Davison, Scott Pye, Macauley Jones and Will Brown.
Westacott will join fellow directors CAMS president Andrew Papadopoulos, Mark Skaife OAM and Ron Gauci.
The foundation is led by general manager Bruce Stewart and chairman Valentina Stojanovska.
“It is an honour to join the CAMS Foundation Board, and to play a part in unearthing and assisting future champions of our sport,” said Westacott.
“Not only can the CAMS Foundation celebrate Daniel Ricciardo as one of its graduates, but we’ve seen success in IndyCar with Will Power, Molly Taylor as an Australian Rally Champion, many junior drivers in a variety of categories and many current drivers on the Supercars grid.”
This year the CAMS Foundation has resurrected its Rising Star program which will see Formula 4 racers Simon Fallon, Cameron Shields, Zane Morse and Ryan Suhle receive support.
