The International Motorcycling Federation has created the International Foundation for Motorcycling (IFM), which aims to promote and support international motorcycle development and the interests of the international motorcycle community.

The goals

According to a communication issued by the FIM, the Foundation will focus on promoting road safety and mobility programmes, training courses, environmental protection, the presence of women in sports structures, and the social and historical heritage of the FIM and motorcycling.

The foundation’s constitutive act was signed on 30 November by FIM president Jorge Viegas (in the centre of the photo) and FIM Deputy Chief Executive Officer Françoise Emery (left), in the present of Swiss notary Françoise Demierre Morand (right), in the Gampert Demierre Moreno notary office in Geneva, Switzerland.
