Robert Piper has been elected to the CAMS Board, following Tuesday night’s election.
The current Chair of the Australian Officials Commission (AOC), Piper will fill the vacancy left by Michael Clements’ recent resignation as elected Director for South Australia and Northern Territory.
Piper has a lengthy involvement in Australian motor sport dating back to 1974 and previously served on the CAMS Board from 1999 to 2010.
CAMS President Andrew Papadopoulos congratulated the newest Director on his election.
“We are looking forward to working closely with Robert and welcome him to the CAMS Board,” Papadopoulos said.
“Robert, who is a Gold Level CAMS Official, will no doubt bring some new ideas and energies to the position and has extensive knowledge of motor sport in Australia in many high profile roles, including as a Director in recent times.”
A Life Member of CAMS, Piper was also awarded the CAMS Award of Merit in 2012.
Following his election, Piper will be required to stand down as Chair from the AOC. The new AOC Chair will be confirmed in the near future.
Piper edged out Kristen Bailey in the election process, who also nominated for the position.
“We congratulate Kristen on putting her hand up for this key role and while she wasn’t quite successful this time around, I am sure she will still be able to have an influence on Australian motor sport into the future,” Papadopoulos added.
The next CAMS Board meeting will be held on 29 August.
