V8 Supercars CEO steps down
Cameron Levick has resigned from his position as Chief Executive Officer of V8 Supercars Australia, less than a year after taking up the position at the head of the series.
He took over as CEO after an exhaustive search was conducted by the board last year, taking over from long-serving CEO Wayne Cattach.
Levick stated that family matters and travel demands impacting on his young family are why he stepped down, the V8 Supercar board accepting his decision earlier this week. However, Levick will continue to work for the category in the short term to finalize a number of current projects.
With the CEO's position now vacant, the board has handed the duties of the CEO to current chairman Tony Cochrane until a new CEO is appointed, which is expected to take place by the start of the 2010 season.
Levick's resignation follows the resignation of category technical director Campbell Little last week, Little having taken on the position just five months ago.
Little's resignation comes after a dispute over the mounting of front splitters on some of the Fords, including those on the team he worked for for the previous four years, Team Vodafone.
Little declared the mounting legal following a series of protests from rival teams, but an appeal still hangs over the eligibility of the cars at the Winton round.
