Walkinshaw dispute resolved.


V8 Supercars Australia and Walkinshaw Performance have resolved a legal dispute between the two parties with an amicable agreement, but series co-ordinator has opened a separate can of worms by asking Australia's motorsport body to state where it stands on the Max Mosley affair.

V8 Supercars Australia and Walkinshaw Performance were involved in a court hearing last week regarding a rule change for this weekend's Midas 400 at Sandown in Melbourne, but have reached an outcome that both organisations are pleased with. It means the parties will not re-appear in the Victorian Supreme Court this Friday, having found a positive outcome to the situation.

The dispute arose after V8SA introduced a rule allowing open examination of any engine in any car by any team from this weekend's round on. Walkinshaw claimed that the rule change would have had the effect of allowing any V8 Supercar team access to confidential material including costings, technical specifications and intellectual property relating to race engine components supplied by the company to four V8 teams.

No sooner has one contentious issue been laid to rest, however, than V8 Supercars Australia called on the Confederation of Australian Motorsport [CAMS] to reveal it's official position on the vote made in Paris last week to retain Max Mosley as FIA president.

V8SA chairman Tony Cochrane has requested that CAMS, as a member-based organisation, at least come forward and inform all its members how it voted on their behalf.

“Whether you are a Formula Vee racing car driver or V8 Supercars Australia, we are all entitled to know how our ASN for Australia voted with regard to this very important international issue,” Cochrane said, "I was not aware that CAMS was a secret society and it is has not shown any leadership to let the membership know what their voting position was.”
