In our story on Tuesday about the FIA International Court of Appeal, we stated that "in 1985 the Automobile Club de Monaco also challenged the ICA and won in the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris."

This is not the case. The ACM case was not based on a decision of the ICA and there was some confusion between the ACM's request for action and the court's verdict.

In fact the ACM's demands were rejected by the civil court which ruled that: "It is not for the judge to intervene in the normal running of a group or association if it conforms to its statutes, as long as the result is not an abuse of procedures and respects the rights of a complete and free defence".
