Prithiviraj replaces Ebrahim as new FMSCI President
Coimbatore Auto Sports Club’s J Prithiviraj has been elected as the President of the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India for a new term through to 2020.
Prithiviraj, who previously served as FMSCI’s Vice President, takes over the presidency from Akbar Ebrahim, a reputed former racer and the founder of the MSport racing team.
Ebrahim replaced Zayn Khan in December 2016.
“This is a proud moment for FMSCI,” the 58-year-old said. “We all have a common goal now and I am sure this powerful council can do wonders to motorsports in the country.”
The announcement was made at the federation’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, where Shivu Shivappa from the Karnataka Motor Sports Club was elected as the Vice-President.
Both Prithiviraj and Shivappa were elected unopposed in the elections - a first in the federation’s history.
FMSCI also announced a bigger 10-member council, up from eight members, comprising Vicky Chandhok (MMSC), Farokh Commissariat (IARC), Ms Sita Raina (CMSC), Akbar Ebrahim (Meco MS), Arindam Ghosh (RRPM), Farooq Ahmed (MSCC), B Vijaykumar (Spitfire MS) and Sanjay Sharma (PCRT).
