FIA and FIVA renew partnership

FIA President Jean Todt and FIVA President Patrick Rollet have signed an updated FIA-FIVA agreement to defend and promote the safe, free and unrestricted use of historic vehicles and their cultural heritage.

This agreement replaces the 1999 agreement and consolidates the long-lasting relationship between the two Federations. It aims to improve coordination, increase cooperation and allow for a better monitoring of joint activities, notably thanks to the re-establishment of the FIA-FIVA Relations Committee (RC).

The RC will identify and investigate problems of common concern and formulate strategies to solve them, coordinate activities of common interest, coordinate and supervise contact between the two organisations and other external bodies, and provide advice on the handling of disagreements, as and when necessary.

FIVA (Fédération Internationale des Véhicles Anciens) was created in 1966. It unites 85 national federations and clubs, with members from 70 countries representing over 1.6 million historic vehicle enthusiasts from the five continents. FIVA is the global organisation aiming to protect, preserve and promote world motoring heritage. Since April 2017, FIVA has been a non-governmental partner of UNESCO.
