UAE TRAINING TEAM HELPS DRIVE MOTOR SPORT IN GEORGIA
Dubai, UAE, 01 June, 2015: The Automobile and Touring Club of the UAE is continuing to play a key role in the development of motor sport in Georgia as part of its ongoing international training efforts.
A four-man team from the Club’s training and education arm, the Motorsport Knowledge Institute (MKI), has just returned from the Georgian capital, Tbilisi after carrying out a two-day safety training programme for race officials.
Training took place at the Rustavi International Motorpark, a 4.1 km race track which was the last circuit built in the former Soviet Union and is scheduled to stage international series racing by the Georgian Automobile Sporting Federation (GASF).
More than 60 GASF officials took part in the programme which was conducted in Russian and English and combined classroom training and race simulations on track.
Georgian officials will next attend the 2016 FI Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November for more live MKI training as part of an exchange programme which the ATCUAE has been running for the last five years.
“Our training teams are very committed and are doing some great work to assist our counterparts in many parts of the world to develop motor sport in their countries,” said ATCUAE President Mohammed Ben Sulayem.
The MKI previously conducted a three three-day training course in Tbilisi two years ago concentrating on the organisation and delivery of safe and successful rallies.
The latest programme was the 27th to be delivered by the ATCUAE across the Middle East, Africa, Europe and South America since it was awarded Regional Training Provider status by the FIA Institute in December 2012.
