Formula 3 Management Statement on 2015 City of Goulburn Cup   
Story By: Formula 3 Management  Date: 12/11/2016 at 8:00:00 PM 
Formula 3 Management can confirm today the decision of the Australian Motor Sport Appeal Court, which excludes the #92 Ricky Capo Racing Dallara/Mugen Honda from the results of the 2015 City of Goulburn Cup, Race 4, held at Wakefield Park on 18 October 2015.

As a result, Roland Legge has been declared the winner of the inaugural City of Goulburn Cup.

Additionally, the results of the Championship have been amended. Jon Collins, Gilmour Racing Dallara/Mercedes, has been declared the 2015 CAMS Australian Formula 3 Champion.

Formula 3 Management respects the decision of the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport and the Australian Motor Sport Appeal Court, and will arrange to ensure that the relevant race and championship winners are recognised appropriately.

We expect co-operation from CAMS in ensuring the 2015 CAMS Australian Formula 3 Champion, Jon Collins, is also recognised by CAMS. This is particularly important as Jon entered the Championship in good faith with the understanding that he would be awarded the CAMS Gold Star.

Formula 3 Management wishes to express it’s disappointment in the delay in making the decision, 13 months, which it believes is an inappropriate period for a national championship to remain in limbo, and does not serve the best interests of the sport.

Particularly disappointing was a decision of CAMS to not refer the decision to the CAMS Eligibility Committee prior to the decision reaching the Australian Motor Sport Appeal Court, which would be almost considered “standard procedure” usually. This decision added unnecessary delay to the process.

We are concerned that two rear wing elements that have met scrutineering requirements at international Formula 3 level previously failed scrutineering in Australia despite being unmodified since.

Formula 3 Management have taken steps at the start of the 2016 season to ensure that measurements taken are only with tooling or templates endorsed by the FIA or Formula 3 Management, and as a result, both cars subject to exclusion have run in the 2016 Australian Formula 3 Premier Series without any eligibility issue to date.
