Burson and CAMS commit to grassroots

Burson Auto Parts has extended its partnership with the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport until at least the end of 2018.

As part of the deal, Burson will continue to support grassroots motor sport, as well as focus on future stars of the sport, with the Burson Rookie of the Round and Rookie of the Year to continue as part of the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship.

Burson will also remain as an official partner for CAMS State and National Awards, which will be held in early 2018. Burson will also proudly support the Burson Future Star Award.

CAMS CEO Eugene Arocca said he was delighted the two organisations would continue to work together into the future.

“The team at Burson have been great supporters of motor sport in this country and as one aspect of our partnership have been able to help some of our most talented younger drivers thrive in the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship,” Arocca said.

“A top prospect in Australian motor sport, Will Brown, was named Burson Rookie of the Year in 2015, and is one of the leading drivers in this year’s Dunlop Super2 Series.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with Burson as this partnership continues on into 2018 as together we help support even more future stars.”
