He gets to be the FMSCI President for the second time.
Former racer Akbar Ebrahim was on Monday unanimously elected for a second term as the president of India's motorsports governing body, FMSCI. The elections were held via video-conference amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ebrahim had his first stint as FMSCI chief from 2016-2018 following which he was replaced by J Prithviraj but the Meco Motorsports head has now replaced him to head the Indian motor racing body.
"It is without doubt, going to be a very challenging and tough year given the unprecedented pandemic situation the whole world is facing. I am sure that the FMSCI will collectively rise to the occasion and manage the situation to the best of its ability," Ebrahim said in a statement.
Farooq Ahmed was unanimously elected as the vice-president. The FMSCI boasts of more than 50 affiliates across all corners of the country and there are more than 1200 registered athletes.
