WOLFGANG SRB ELCTED NEW FIM EUROPE PRESIDENT
In other FIM Europe news, Wolfgang Srb has been elected as the new FIM Europe President. And while it’s not sure what direct impact that will have on enduro, his main target is to strengthen the position of FIM Europe within the FIM family.
“FIM Europe is not only the biggest Continental Union in terms of affiliated Federations, but also in terms of the biggest number of riders, licences, organisers and events,” confirmed Srb.
“There is an urgent need for a bigger financial support from FIM for European projects. There are plenty of ideas in Europe and we simply want a fair share of the subventions, taking into account that we are the biggest and most active CONU. We need to give more help to developing Federations, who have financial problems. The financial crisis, that has hit the world as of 2008, is still not over.”
“FIM Europe needs to be more active and stronger, but at the same time the management has to work efficient and cost effective. We have to listen to the needs of our affiliated Federations and have to help and support them as much as we can.”
Wolfgang Srb as FIM Europe President will represent the 47 European Motorcycling Federations. “I’m not here to fulfil my personal things, I’m here to listen all the European Federations’ needs and to bring their messages to the right people.”
