Gautam Singhania nominated to contest FIA WMSC elections for post of titular member
The Federation of Motor Sport Clubs of India (FMSCI) has nominated Gautam Singhania to contest the election for the post of FIA titular member in the World Motor Sports Council. The previous representative from India was Vijay Mallya. The elections will be held on the 8th of December in Paris at the FIA World Motor Sports Council meeting.
The FMSCI stated in a press release that the two names put up to the board for consideration were that of motorsport enthusiast and industrialist Gautam Singhania, and former FMSCI president Vicky Chandhok. While the statutes of the FIA for WMSC elections state that two candidates can be nominated to contest the elections, the FMSCI decided that nominating just one candidate would help them "put up a strong, singular contest".
The FIA AGM in December will see a new President and seven Vice Presidents elected for a four-year term. The WMSC board consists of fourteen titular members, elected by 196 members of the WMSC, as well as four members by right. The FMSCI's President, Akbar Ebrahim will attend the AGM and vote on behalf of India.
If Singhania is elected to the post of titular member, he will represent the FMSCI in the WMSC, while Ebrahim, as FMSCI President, will be the deputy titular.
