Words from New Zealand
Motorsport New Zealand is the latest body to comment on FIA boss Max Mosley. Ross Armstrong, general manager of the organization, told Radio New Zealand that it would be an "excellent result" if Mosley resigned rather than being pushed out. Mosley had been invited to the New Zealand Automobile Association's transport and environment summit here in June but organisers this week withdrew that invitation. The event clashes with the planned FIA General Assembly on June 3 when Mosley faces a vote of no confidence.
The vote, by a secret ballot, follows calls from Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Israel, Canada, and the United States for Mosley to resign. Thus far the only public support for Moslrey has come from Brazil and from the United Arab Emirates.
