The FIM – Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme – and FIVA – the Fédération Internationale Véhicules Anciens – renewed their long-standing convention for another five years when they met at round three of the FIM Superbike World Championship, the Pirelli Dutch Round, at the TT Circuit Assen in the Netherlands last weekend.
Signed by FIM President Jorge Viegas and FIVA President Tiddo Bresters in the presence of FIVA Motorcycle Commission Chairman Keith Gibbins and FIM Deputy CEO Damiano Zamana, the five-year extension is an important agreement that serves to clarify the interactions between the two organisations.
Coming twenty-seven after the FIM and FIVA first agreed to work together, the extension is a strong reference of cooperation between national affiliated bodies of both organisations.
FIVA is a non-profit, worldwide organisation dedicated to the protection, preservation and promotion of historic vehicles that was established in 1966 and represents millions of historic vehicle enthusiasts.
FIVA President Tiddo Bresters said: “I am delighted to extend the partnership with the FIM for another five years and continue to work closely together to keep historic motorcycles on the road, always aiming to do so in a safe and sustainable manner”.
FIM President Jorge Viegas added: “I am very satisfied to continue this long collaboration and to evolve it and bring it up to date. It is important to clarify the role of affiliate members of both organisations and I am looking forward to benefiting from the support of FIVA for the FIM Heritage Motorcycles certification process.”
