Mosley to attend WRC round

NEWS STORY
16/04/2008

FIA President Max Mosley is to attend the forthcoming Jordan Rally, a round of the FIA World Rally Championship.

The Englishman, who was recently asked not to attend the Bahrain Grand Prix, a direct result of the sex scandal uncovered by a British tabloid, has been invited to the Jordan event by HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, Chairman of Jordan Motorsport.

The invitation comes on the same day that Motorsport South Africa called on Mosley to stand down, less than two months ahead of the extraordinary hearing of the FIA's General Assembly in Paris, at which point Mosley's future will be decided in a secret ballot.

The Rally takes place on the same weekend as the Spanish Grand Prix.

A statement issued by the event organizers this afternoon reads:

FIA President Max Mosley heads an impressive list of VIP's attending the Jordan Rally from April 24-27, an event that will mark the return of the World Rally Championship (WRC) to the Arab World for the first time in 32 years.

Mosley has been a staunch supporter of Jordan's bid to become a part of the prestigious championship and has delighted organisers by accepting an invitation to attend from HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, Chairman of Jordan Motorsport.

"Max has been a strong friend and ally to Jordan and has supported us since we announced our bid three years ago, so we are delighted that he will be sharing this historic occasion with us," said HRH Prince Feisal.

Leading figures from the world of motorsport are set to attend the Jordan Rally, with World Champion Sebastien Loeb topping an impressive line up of 55 drivers that will compete for three days in an event tailor-made for the WRC.
