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.
