The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme’s management council moved to create a working group to study alternative energies to fossil fuels during a conference meeting earlier this month.
FIM Vice President Robert Rasor (U.S.) will head the working group. Other FIM delegates that are members of the working group are Oriol Puig Bulto (Spain, International Technical Panel president); Anders Minken (Norway, Trial Commission vice president); Silvio Manicardi (Italy, Commission for Mobility, Transport, Road Safety and Public Policy member); Roland Berger (Australia, International Technical Panel member) and Karl-Friedrich Ziegahn (Germany, International Environmental Commission member).
The group’s first meeting was held at FIM headquarters in Mies, Switzerland, May 11. The group started out defining alternative energies suitable for motorcycling and established a working plan, including short-, mid- and long-term objectives.
The FIM Management Council will consider the working group’s initial recommendations during its meeting in June in Geneva, Switzerland.
