DUBAI: Dr Mohammed Ben Sulayem said on Sunday that the newly formed executive committee of the Arab Motorcycle Federation (AMF) is ideally poised to take competitive bike racing in the Middle East to a new level.

Sulayem, President of the Automobile and Touring Club of the UAE (ATCUAE), said the committee, which was formerly elected during a meeting at the AMF’s new Riyadh headquarters in Saudi Arabia can now move toward overseeing a calendar of moto racing events run to the international standards laid down by the FIM, the sport’s world governing body.

The AMF will be headed by its new President, His Highness Prince Sultan bin Bandar Al Faisal, with the new executive committee elected under the presence and supervision of the Union of Arab National Olympic Committees (UANOC).

Mahir Badri, CEO of the ATCUAE is among the elected committee, joining Omar Zaarour, Executive Director of the Royal Motorcycle Club of Jordan, and Essa Alawadhi, Member of Bahrain Motorcycle Federation.

Other members are Sultan Almeraikhi, member of Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation, Adel Abdelbaqi, President of the Automobile Touring Club of Egypt, and Khalid Qadurra, President of the Palestinian Motorcycle and Motorsport Federation.
