2015 FIM-EUROPE’ CONGRESS IN MALTA by ASMK

During this week the Assocjazzjoni Sport Muturi u Karozzi (ASMK) will be organizing the 20th edition of the ‘2015 FIM-Europe Congress’ in Malta at Hotel Excelsior. This great event officially starts on Thursday 2nd July to Saturday 4th July with the participation of about 300 delegates from the 47 member European Federations. Representatives of the International Federation of Motorcycles (FIM) will also be present.

 

During the congress the FIM-E Commissions will be discussing the various subjects with regards to the Management, European Motorcycling Sporting Championships including International events as well as other events related to Road Racing, Drag Racing, Motocross, Supermoto, Enduro, Trials, Track Racing, Vintage Motorcycles, the Environment, Touring and the use of motorcycles as a means of transport.

The 3 day program includes no less than 17 different workshops with regards to the different disciplines. Yet the Safety Commission which is in the 9th year officially running as a stand alone commission will be discussing and presenting issues related to the theme chosen for this year which is – ‘the development of electronics on motorcycles both on the machine itself and when driving the motorcycle on the road as well as in Sports’. During this session Transport Malta will be presenting the local situation with regards to motorcycling in Malta. Anybody interested to attend this session on Friday 3rd July at 4: 30pm in Hall Bellavanti at the Hotel Excelsior in Floriana is kindly invited to apply by sending an email to asmk@go.net.mt

 

The conference will be concluded on Saturday 4th July afternoon when all delegates meet together and vote for decisions discussed and taken by the several commissions. Such decisions will start being implemented in the coming year. The conference closes the activities by Gala Dinner for all delegates at Verdala Palace in Buskett. For several years ASMK was a membership of the UEM (European Motorcycle Union) which today is re-named ‘FIM-Europe’ and a Full Member of FIM. In 2012 the Association became a full member to the International FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme) by an unanimous vote taken in Riga. Thus the Association has become stronger and it is Internationally recognized as Malta’s Federation representing FIM. Following this, ASMK started to see more opportunities coming along towards ASMK and the Maltese motorcycling.

 

The year 2012 was a difficult year for FIM and UEM as FIM was in the process of grouping all motorcycling sport country Federations under one umbrella. Today, all the European countries, African, Asian, American and Oceania joined together with the International Federation of Motorcycles – FIM. 3 years ago ASMK has started negotiations to hold the 2015 Congress in Malta while attending the FIM-E general Conference in Serbia in 2012. These negotiations were supported by the Maltese Council for Sport (KMS) that at that time was under the leadership of Mr. Bernard Vassallo. ASMK President Frans Deguara and Johann Pace Secretary General held several meetings with the leadership of FIM Europe at that time presided by Dr. Vincenzo Mazzi, Secretary General Alessandro Sanbuco and Federation delegates from different countries. 2013 was not an easy year too but the Maltese Council for Sport under the leadership of Mr. Jonathan Barbara assisted ASMK to go to Lithuania to bid for the FIM-E Conference to be held in Malta although other countries wanted to take home the 2015 Conference.

 

After a whole year of intensive preparations last year, while in Cracow – Poland, ASMK President and Secretary General presented Malta to the FIM-Europe Conference delegates as the ideal country to hold the 2015 FIM-Europe Conference. This proposal was unanimously approved by the delegates present and confirmed too on the 29th September 2014 by the FIM-E Management Council in Riga. This was a great reward and of great satisfaction to the ASMK and to our Island Malta. The 2015 FIM-E Conference in Malta was confirmed.

 

The Association thanks Her Excellency the President of Malta for supporting this event, the Parliamentary Secretary for Research, innovation, Youth and Sport, the Council for Maltese Sports KMS, the Finance Minister, the Minister for Tourism, Transport Malta, Malta Tourism Authority, Sign-it, Nexos, Catermax, Delicata, Monster Energy Drink, General Soft Drinks and Mr. S. Curmi & Sons.

Il-konferenza taghlaq l-attivitajiet b’Gala Dinner mal-Ufficjali FIM-E u FIM fil-Palazz Verdala fil-Buskett bil-permess gentili tal-Ecc. Tahha M.Louise Coleiro Preca President ta Malta.

Wara diversi snin l-ASMK membru affiljat mal-UEM (European Motorcycle Union) li llum hija l-FIM-Europe, fl-2012 l-Assocjazzjoni ASMK saret membru shih affiljata mal-FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme) b’vot unanimu gewwa Riga. B’hekk l-Assocjazzjoni saret iktar b’sahhitha u fuq kollox hija rikonoxxuta Internazzjonalment fil-qasam tal-muturi. Wara dan il-pass bdejna naraw aktar opportunitajiet biex l-ASMK tkompli tavanza.

F’dan il-perjodu ma kienx zmien facli ghall FIM u l-UEM minhabba li dawn kienu ghaddejjin min process biex il-FIM tigbor lill pajjizi kollha tad-dinja taht kappa wahda. Din kienet eperjenza fejn il-pajjizi Ewropej, Afrikani, Asjatici, Americani kif ukoll l-Ocejani jinghaqdu kollha flimkien mal-Federazzjoni Internazzjonali tal-muturi – FIM.

Fis-sena 2012 l-ASMK bdiet in-nogozjati biex il-Kungress tal-2015 isir f’Malta. Dan beda fil-Konferenza tal-FIM-Europe li saret fis-Serbia bi qbil mal-Kunsill Malti ghal-Isport dak iz-zmien immexxi mis Sur Bernard Vassallo. Il-President tal-ASMK Frans Deguara u s-Segretarju Generali Johann Pace iltaqghu diversi drabi mat-tmexxija tal-FIM-Europe dak iz-zmien imexxija min Dr. Vincenzo Mazzi President u Sandro Sambuco Segretarju Generali u ma Federazzjonijiet min diversi pajjizi. Ma kienx facli li nkomplu izda fis-Sena 2013 il-Kunsill Malti ghall-isport taht it-tmexxija tas-Sur Jonathan Barbara ta’ l-ghajnuna mehtiega lill-ASMK biex fil-Litwanja l-ASMK setghet taghmel il-bid tahha biex il-Konferenza Internazzjonali ngibuha f’Malta u dan minkejja li pajjizi ohra riedu jiehdu l-Konferenza tal-2015 f’pajjizhom.

Wara hafna preparamenti is-sena l-ohra l-ASMK ipprezentat lill Konferenza FIM-E fi Cracow fil-Polonja li Malta hija l-post idejali biex il-konferenza FIM-Europe tal-2015 issir f’Malta. Wara l-prezentazzjoni viswali u diskors id-delegati kollha b’vot unanimu approvaw il-mozzjoni li Malta ser tkun qed torganizza l-Kungress tal-FIM-Europe 2015. Dan gie wkoll issigillat mill-Amministrazzjoni FIM-E gewwa Riga nhar id-29 ta Settembru 2014. Dan kien ta sodisfazzjoni kbir ghal ASMK kif ukoll ghall gzira Malta taghna.

Fil-waqt l-Assocjazzjoni tirringrazzja lill Ecc. Tahha l-President ta’ Malta, is-Segretarju Parlamentari ghar-Ricerka, Inovazzjoni, Zaghagh u Sport, il-Kunisll Malti ghall-Isport, il-Ministru tal-Finazi, il-Ministru tat-Turizmu, lill Transport Malta, Malta Tourism Authority, Sign-it, Nexos, Catermax, Monster Energy Drink, Delicata, General Soft Drinks u S.
