Ari receives support from clubs - Vatanen gets a boost in his quest for the FIA Presidency

Published by Christine

It looks as though Vatanen's campaign for head of the FIA has received a bit of a boost as several clubs from various countries have pledged their support. Apparently, 14 clubs have declared their views and they are urging others to do the same.

Their letter to other clubs urging them to join the Vatanen fan club reads:

The unique background of Ari Vatanen includes his years in the European Parliament, to which he was elected from two countries (Finland and France). During his dramatic and successful, humanly touching career in rallying he became a world champion.

As a spokesman for the federation in the present day world, where media attention and diplomacy with various stake holders is becoming more and more vital, Ari comes across as an ideal candidate for all who want to create a future in the spirit of fair collaboration.

It doesn't mention the future of Sidepodcast, but I think they can read between the lines.
