The 1990 Australian Drivers' Championship was a CAMS sanctioned national motor racing title for drivers of Formula Holden racing cars. The winner of the championship was awarded the 1990 CAMS Gold Star.[1]

Calendar[edit]

The title was contested over an eight round series with one race per round.[2]

Championship points were awarded on a 9-6-4-3-2-1 basis to the top six finishers at each round. Each driver could retain only his/her best seven results, any other points being discarded. Australian Formula 2 cars were invited to compete in the final three rounds to boost competitor numbers.
