In the world of motorsport they are called production cars, but in the wider community the term 'daily drive' is not far off the mark, yet the roots of the championship go back to the glory days of Bathurst when the greats of the sport drove their race cars to the track.
The Australian Manufacturers Championship or Amchamp, incorporating the Australian Production Car Championship and the Australian Endurance Championship for drivers, allows a wide-ranging list of vehicles sold in the domestic automotive market to take to the track and compete for a prestigious CAMS Australian Championship title.
The three-pronged Championship awards the vehicle manufacturer, as well as the ultimately successful driver/s. Six separate classes make up the Championship/s and provide one of the most eclectic fields of competitors in Australian motorsport.
Incorporating high performance vehicles all the way through to those running on alternative energy, the Australian Manufacturers Championship places style alongside muscle, ingenuity versus agility, and continent against continent. Success requires teamwork, strategy, exceptional race craft and very well maintained equipment.
AMChamp racer Mark Eddy has unveiled this first look of his new Network Clothing/Dentbuster Audi TTRS which will be debuted at our penultimate round of 2015 next week (Wakefield Park Raceway, 16-18 Oct). The machine has been built by Col Matthews and Francois Juoy, with help from Alan Heaphy. Eddy will field the Audi TTRS in a solo capacity for both of the weekends' two 200kmh races.
Beric Lynton in the Alphera Financial Services BMW1M has made it two wins from two days in round three of the Amchamps. Lynton took the lead with 15 laps to go after a thrilling battle with the Sherrin brothers BMW - who had lead for the majority of the race up to that point. Third outright was the Pollicina/Lillie HSV in an impressive effort to recover from their early race issues, while fourth was Tony Alford in the Donut King BMW. Fifth and taking the win for Class C was Camilleri in the Grand Prix Mazda supported Mazda3, while the Phillips/Turpie Pedders Toyota brought home the Class D win and 8th outright.
