It was a bit of a surprise that I was unanimously requested to continue as President for another term. Rallying continues its upward trend in the region and I am honoured to continue what we started two years ago. Our focus will be on expanding to new regions and continue growing the sport at the grass root level, said Chandhok, who is also a former FMSCI President.
Also present was Wayne Christie, President of the FIA Rally Commission to share FIA's thoughts on the future of rallying and to also understand the challenges faced by the APRC.
Deviating from the norms, they requested outgoing Chandhok who was not a candidate for the post to accept the Presidency for another term.
Takahito Sugita (Japan) will serve as the Vice-President. Stalwarts Tengku Shaharin Abu Bakar (Malaysia) and Willard Martin (New Zealand) will serve on the executive committee along with Sugita and Chandhok.
The Working Group meeting also put forward revised regulations, a media plan and a tentative calendar of six events for 2019 which will be finalised in September this year. India figures in the list of possible 2019 events.
