In the elegant surroundings of the AFC in Paris yesterday, FIA President, Jean Todt made a major mark in the first year of his presidency by announcing the launch of the FIA GT1 World Championship. The new world championship will sit alongside F1, WRC and WTTC as the FIA’s fourth fully accredited world championship.
Todt, appearing alongside championship promoter Stephan Ratel, was keen to acknowledge the work that Ratel’s SRO Motorsport Group had put in to make the championship happen. “You must be very brave to decide to become the promoter of such a championship right now. In terms of FIA World Championships, we have Formula One, WRC, WTCC and now FIA GT1 World Championship.
