The Automobile and Touring Club of the UAE (ATCUAE) organized recently an FIM Technical Steward’s training seminar at its headquarters in Al Mamzar, Dubai.
Trainees taking part in the workshop learn the skills and regulations required to ensure that motorcycles taking part in international competitions, such as the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, and the Moto GP meet the required technical standards of the FIM, motorcycle sport’s worldwide governing body.
“In the last twenty years, the popularity of motorcycle sport in the GCC has exploded and it is fantastic to now see international level road racing, motocross, and rallying now taking place here to a very high standard”, said Mohammed Ben Sulayem, President of ATCUAE and EMSF.
“Working with the FIM to organise this workshop helps us to sustain this development and expand further, and we will hopefully see the number of national and international events grow in the seasons to come, as well as introducing new motorcycle disciplines to the region”.
The training seminar, which covers all disciplines of motorcycling, was conducted on behalf of the FIM by Mr. Peter Radoczi, who represents Slovakia on the FIM International Technical Commission (CTI), and was attended by participants from various clubs around the region.
