FIA opens tender for World Rally Championship promoter role

Sebastien Loeb, Citroen, Sweden 2012The FIA has stepped up its pursuit of a promoter for the World Rally Championship by putting the job out to tender, with the winner of the process to be announced at the end of next month.

Discussions between the FIA and Eurosport broke down at the end of last week and the sport's governing body has now taken decisive action to end this period of instability in the championship.

In a statement, the FIA said: "The FIA is calling for expressions of interest to identify candidates interested in getting involved as an agent, a promoter or an investor in the promotion of the FIA World Rally Championship with a view to concluding a multi-year contract.

"The series is widely regarded as one of the most significant international motorsport championships and is supported by some of the world's largest manufacturers."

Further details of the process are available on the FIA website.

The previous WRC promoter North One Sport had its contract terminated when its parent company Convers Sports Initiatives went into administration.
