Australian GT Championship

Australian GT Championship

The Australian GT Championship is a CAMS-sanctioned national title for drivers of GT cars, held annually from 1960 to 1963, from 1982 to 1985 and from 2005. Each championship up to and including the 1963 title was contested over a single race and those after that year over a series of races.

In the first era the championship races were open to closed cars (not necessarily production based) complying with CAMS Appendix K regulations. The 1982 to 1985 titles were open to heavily modified production based closed cars complying with CAMS Group D GT regulations, with Group B Sports Sedans also invited to compete in 1982. The 2005 series was started as a continuation of the Australian Nations Cup Championship and has year by year moved towards adopting FIA GT3 regulations, but also allows other varieties of cars which do not meet GT3 regulations.
