XSPORT signs agreement to promote FIM World Superbikes in UAE


Dubai, April 2009 – At a meeting today in Dubai between Maurizio Flammini, Chairman of Infront Motorsports and Lex Akehurst, it was agreed that XSPORT would act as a local promoter to negotiate a race event for the championship calendar in the coming years.

“We have had good discussions with the Executive committee at ADMM /Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi in recent weeks, and we have also been in discussions with the FIM about homologation of the circuit. We have invited the circuit sporting director to meet us in Qatar to further these discussions, so lets see how it goes”….

“The Yas Circuit is in a prime location for motorcycle racing and with the fantastic facilities it would open up more possibilities besides F1. We hope that they can make the necessary alterations to the track layout to suit the bikes for safety reasons, as its not the same requirements for F1 and car racing,” commented Lex Akehurst, Managing Director at XSPORT Group.
