Club news: Safety training for race officials In Bosnia

Publication date: 25 September 2014

Over 50 delegates from all parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina and neighbouring countries attended a safety training for race officials on 20 - 21 September in Sarajevo, supported by the FIA Institute and Motor Sport Safety Development Fund.

The ‘Race Officials Safety Training’ was hosted by BIHAMK and performed by a team of expert trainers from the United Arab Emirates Automobile and Touring Club, an FIA Institute-accredited Regional Training Provider. Through series of lectures and practical exercise, the trainers from the UAE explained the basic concepts of marshalling, timekeeping and safety aspects in rally and other grassroots motorsport events. After the training had been completed, the participants successfully passed the written examination and were given certification. Excellent event organisation and well adapted training material contributed to the big success of Race Officials Safety Training in Sarajevo.

Mr. Rasim Kadic, President of BIHAMK opened the event. In his remarks, he stressed the importance of the training to establish the FIA-based standards in the procedures for race officials in South-Eastern Europe and providing further development for motorsport in Bosnia and Herzegovina: “We do hope that the success of this training will help to form a core unit of educated and certified Sport Officials in B-H that will be able to grow and further upgrade their knowledge in motorsport thus contributing to raising the overall quality and safety level of motorsport events in this part of Europe.”
