Postponement to 2015 of the 3rd European Motorcycling Senior Activity Meeting

fim europe
The 3rd edition of the European Motorcycling Senior Activity Meeting and the joint European Motorcycling Senior Activity Conference “Extending the riding age”, originally foreseen for the 31st May and 1st June 2014 in Salsomaggiore Terme (ITA), have been postponed to the next year. This event had been subsidized by the FIM for its launch during the first two editions but, from this year, not counting on the same financial aid, it should have been realized with our own resources. Therefore the Management Council has established the deadline of the 31st January, in order to find the aforesaid financial coverage. Unfortunately the actual economic situation has prevented to find the necessary budget, with the inevitable consequence to postpone to the next year this 3rd edition that, as previously decided for 2015, should take place in the town of Hlohovec (Slovakia).   Download here FIM Europe Press Release 004/2014
