Launched by FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem, who has previous experience organising the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix during his presidency of the Emirates Motorsports Organisation (EMSO), the new Sporting Organiser Working Group aims to facilitate knowledge-sharing between National Sporting Authorities (ASNs).

The project follows on from last month’s announcement of a strategic plan between the FIA and Formula One Management (FOM). It seeks to bring together ASNs from around the world to create a streamlined framework for the processes and requirements involved in organising an FIA Formula One World Championship event.

In a press release, the FIA added that the Sporting Organiser Working Group “will be rolled out across other FIA World Championships in due course.”

FIA aims to improve competitor and fan experiences

The overall goal of this framework is to strengthen the already-existing network of ASNs and other organisations operating at the highest level of experience, in order to improve experiences for competitors and fans.

As ASNs are the only bodies granted power by the FIA to regulate motorsport events in their respective countries, they are significant in making Grands Prix happen.

By launching the Sporting Organiser Working Group, as well as a “dedicated support network”, the FIA aims to continue the growth of the highest levels of motor racing.
