The MSA has congratulated Jean Todt on his re-election as FIA President and Graham Stoker on his re-appointment as FIA Deputy President for Sport.

Todt was handed a third term in office with a unanimous show of hands at the FIA’s General Assembly in Paris last week (8 December). “It is gratifying to have such universal support,” said Todt. “I would like to thank all of the Member Clubs of the FIA for their support. I see this as a validation of the direction the FIA has taken under my leadership, and as encouragement to continue the programme we have pursued over the past eight years.”

Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, welcomed the move. “The MSA has enjoyed an excellent working relationship with the FIA under Jean’s leadership,” said Jones. “He has expressed his support and enthusiasm for UK motor sport on many occasions, for example when visiting us at Autosport International or attending our annual Night of Champion ceremony.

“We are equally pleased that Graham Stoker will continue for another term as FIA Deputy President for Sport. As a former Chairman of the UK’s Motor Sports Council, Graham is very well known to the MSA and we are confident that this close relationship will continue to prove beneficial to the interests of British motor sport over the coming years.”
