What is CAMA? As mentioned above, CAMA is the entity created in 2003 by the group of five amateur clubs which were the majority users of Second Creek. These clubs are: Motorcycle Roadracing Association (MRA), Porsche Club of America, Rocky Mtn. Region (PCA-RMR), Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing (RMVR), the Colorado Region of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), and the Multi-Car Club Alliance (MCCA). The Multi-Car Club Alliance is a collective of eight other car clubs, specifically: the Alfa Romeo Club of Colorado; Audi Club; BMWCCA, Rocky Mountain Chapter; Colorado Exotic Car Association (CECA); Lotus Colorado; Mercedes Benz Club of America, Mile-High Section; Viper Club, Colorado Region; and the Z-Car Club of Colorado.
Each of the five clubs designate a working representative to CAMA. These representatives keep their respective club Boards informed about all CAMA decisions and provide guidance from their respective Boards to CAMA.
Predating CAMA, way back in 1994, the same clubs had formed Colorado Motorsports Council (CMC) which played a very important role in HPR’s ultimate success. In 1997, with a $100,000 collective investment (i.e. each of the five clubs provided $20,000), CMC was able to assume the lease of Second Creek. They also purchased some track assets from the previous lease holder and successfully operated Second Creek over the ensuing eight years. The land under Second Creek was never owned, but rather leased. That successful CMC effort kept the track open, maintained it, and in the process accumulated a substantial surplus over those years. That surplus became the seed capital for CAMA’s efforts to find and build a new track.
