The 1985 Australian Manufacturers' Championship was a CAMS sanctioned motor racing title for car manufacturers.[1] It was the 15th manufacturers title to be awarded by CAMS and the 6th to carry the Australian Manufacturers' Championship name.[2] All championship rounds were open to cars complying with Australian Touring Car regulations,[1] which were based on FIA Group A rules.[3]

Calendar[edit]

The championship was contested concurrently with the 1985 Australian Endurance Championship over a five round series with one race per round.[4]

Class Structure[edit]

Cars were grouped into three engine classes based on engine capacity:

  • Up to 2000cc
  • 2001 to 3000cc
  • 3001 to 6000cc [1]

Points system[edit]

Championship points were awarded on a multi scale system for outright places gained at each round:

  • Scale A was applied to cars in the Up to 2000cc class
  • Scale B was applied to cars in the 2001 to 3000cc class
