About CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship

  • It is a developmental single seater open-wheel racing category for young drivers who are serious about a pathway to the top of motor sport.
  • It is based on the new FIA international regulations for Formula 4 with a focus on keeping costs down and guaranteeing the highest possible safety standards.
  • It’s built on four cornerstones: technical regulations, organisational standards, sporting regulations, and marketing and communications.
  • The CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship drivers’ title will be awarded to the driver who has scored the highest number of points at the season’s end with the Championship winner to formally accept the award and prize at the annual CAMS National Awards night, at which all CAMS national champions are recognised.
