    yeah there are allot of regulations in motorsport, your best bet would be to contact the Confederation of Australian Motorsort (cams).

    You can get a racing licence from 2 sources, one is CAMS as listed above, the othere is AASA, see:
    AASA

    The only difference is that AASA will accept a CAMS Licence at AASA sanctioned events, but CAMS will not accept a AASA Licence at their event, go figure? :bang:

    heeno,

    Deffinatly get a CAMS licence mate. Its recognised at all events all over Australia.

    It depends what category you are going to race in to what cams licence you need to get, and what criteria have to be met to get it.

    The cams site has all the info you need. (As previously stated).

    I know you mean "less bureaucratic and LESS expensive than CAMS" but it didn't quite read like that, hope the clarification is OK. :thumbsup:
