1985 Australian Endurance Championship

The 1985 Australian Endurance Championship was a CAMS sanctioned motor racing title for drivers of Touring Cars complying with an Australian version of FIA Group A Touring Car regulations. The championship was the fifth Australian Endurance Championship and the fourth to be awarded as a drivers title.

Calendar

The championship was contested over a five-round series which was staged concurrently with the 1985 Australian Manufacturers' Championship.

Class Structure

Cars were grouped into three classes based on engine capacity:

  • Up to 2000cc
  • 2001 to 3000cc
  • 3001 to 6000cc
  • Points system

    Championship points were allocated on a three scale system, to Australian license holders only, for outright places gained in each round:

  • Scale A was applied to drivers of cars in the Up to 2000cc class
  • Scale B was applied to drivers of cars in the 2001 to 3000cc class
  • Scale C was applied to drivers of cars in the 3001 to 6000cc class
  • In rounds where two drivers were compulsory (i.e. the Sandown and Bathurst rounds), full championship points were allocated to each of the two drivers provided that both had driven at least one third of the relevant distance. In all other rounds, where two drivers were not compulsory, points were allocated to each of the two drivers provided each had driven at least one third of the distance. If each had not driven such a distance, full points were allocated to the driver who had driven the greater distance. In all cases, points were only awarded to a driver who had driven one single car throughout the duration of the event.
