Robby Gordon’s Australian Visa Ban is Lifted By CAMS

Earlier in 2017, Robby Gordon got in big trouble with the Confederation of Australia Motor Sport (CAMS) for doing an illegal burnout in his Stadium Super Truck in downtown Darwin. This act actually got him in so much trouble that CAMS indefinitely banned his Visa that allowed him to compete in Australia. On top of the Visa ban, he was also fined $4,150 AUD by the local Darwin courts.

In October of 2017, the Visa ban was lifted after Gordon sent a written apology and $10,000 AUD to the Australian Road Safety Foundation. “CAMS can today confirm it has received a written apology from Robby Gordon following an incident in Darwin earlier this year, Gordon has also donated $10,000 to the Australian Road Safety Foundation,” read a statement from CAMS.

The Stadium Super Trucks series was originally created by Mickey Thompson, but it was reintroduced by Robby Gordon. The series is very popular in Australia and is growing every single year. Although the ban may seem minuscule, it was really something that could hurt the Stadium Super Truck series over time.

“As a result of the Tribunal hearing, Gordon has submitted a written apology and made a donation to the Australian Road Safety Foundation. Gordon is now welcome to compete in motorsport in Australia. In his apology, Gordon said ‘it was not my intention to engage in any actions that were inconsistent with, or prejudicial to the interests of motorsports in Australia’. He added he was a ‘big fan of Australian motorsports’ and wished to ‘support and see Australian motorsport grow’” said the CAMS governing body.
