Happy to announce Ethiopia will host the 2016 FIA (International Automobile Federation) Africa Regional Congress.
FIA President Jean Todt will be here as well and we'll do our best to use this opportunity to push Ethiopian motor sport ahead.
The congress will focus on growing motorsport in Africa, with key sessions on:
- management of motorsport associations/clubs
- officials licensing (grade, certifications, recruitment & retention)
- grassroots disciplines & participation programmes
- risk management & continuous improvement including spectator safety, spectator culture, guidelines
- other important topics
Many challenges and difficulties have hindered progress so far and although much work is needed from our side we are confident that hosting the FIA conference in Ethiopia will contribute in achieving our goals.
Will post more during and after the conference.
