THE MEXICAN FEDERATION OF MOTOR SPORTS SOLVES ITS TROUBLE by CAJAL

On a stormy session, March 19, 1996, the Mexican Federation of Motorsports (FMAD) reached an agreement to solve the rebellion against its President, Julio Vivanco, by forcing the resignation of Julio and of the leader of the accusing group, Vicepresident Franco Soldati, and calling for a rewrite of the statutes and holding a new election in 3 months. Vivanco never could explain all the expenses made during his tenure and most likely will never be involved in Motor Sports in Mexico, at least not as a sanctioning authority, while Franco will likely come back one day since he is held in great regard by the racing community. Vivanco's last statement went to defend the role of the promoters in the Mexican scene, saying they needed more say in the organization, and the making of the rules, which does not seem to be the prevalent opinion among the different commissions that form the Executive Committee of the FMAD (racing, rallying, vintage, karting, dragsters). Whatever the results, it is a pity that after 8 years of stability, the first year of a new presidency produces such a pitiful show. Maybe when the EC rewrites the rules they can do it in such a way that it prevents arrivistes from getting in position before being tried and tested as to their real commitment to the racing scene.
