Connect with Sports Sedans SA
Welcome to the Sports Sedan Association of South Australia.
What is a Sports Sedan?
Sports sedans are full bodied race cars (tin tops) with significant modification freedoms in relation to almost all aspects of the vehicle. There are three divisions and a number of sub-classes within the Club covering varying levels of modification and engine capacities allowing enjoyable participation no matter what level and extent of modification you prefer. The grid includes everything from race prepped production cars right through to full dedicated tube frame race cars. The Sports Sedan Association of South Australia is a CAMS affiliated car club open to all cars that fit within and comply with the CAMS sports sedan regulations, the main things being roll cage, safety and dimensional requirements. A link to the sports sedan regs can be found on our resources page.

What cars are suitable?
If you have a car that has a hardtop roof, was available in Australia or at least 5000 were manufactured worldwide then it can be raced as a Sports Sedan. Some cars are highly modified space frame based cars, some are hotted up standard chassis cars and some are a mixture of both. There are a wide variety of car makes, shapes and sizes.
Which engine can I use?
You can use whatever engine you want ! so long as it is 6000cc or less in capacity and you can fit it into your car without breaking the CAMS regulations, which almost means you can run anything in anything. The engine you choose will determine the division and class you compete in within the Club and will also determine your minimum racing weight. You can also run forced induction but your capacity is then multiplied by 1.7 and the 6000cc limit in total still applies.
How do the divisions and classes work?
There are three main divisions within the Club based on engine capacity, each running their own outright championship.
Division 1 - Sports Sedans with engines between 4001cc and 6000cc
Division 2 - Sports Sedans with engines between 2001cc and 4000cc
Division 3 - Sports Sedans with engines up to 2000cc
There are also class brackets within each division based on engine capacity and these determine your minimum racing weight.
Cars are also separated as being either Open (Tube Frame) or Chassis (Floorpan) depending on the level and extent of modifications undertaken.
