FIA President Max Mosley has accepted an invitation from Jordan to be a VIP guest at the country’s inaugural World Rally Championship event on April 24-27.
The event will mark the return of the WRC to the Arab World for the first time in 32 years and will be Mosley's first public appearance at an international motorsport event since allegations relating to his private life were made in a British tabloid newspaper.
Mosley has been a staunch supporter of Jordan’s bid to become a part of the championship and accepted an invitation to attend from HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, Chairman of Jordan Motorsport. The prince is the brother of King Abdullah and is also president of Jordan's national Olympic committee.
“Max has been a strong friend and ally to Jordan and has supported us since we announced our bid three years ago, so we are delighted that he will be sharing this historic occasion with us,” said HRH Prince Feisal.
