FMSCI chief Akbar Ebrahim has been nominated as the president of FIA's International Karting Commission (CIK). As president of the CIK (Commission Internationale de Karting), Ebrahim will also get a seat on the FIA World Motor Sports Council.

He is the first Indian ever to be elevated to this prestigious position. "I am aware that this is a huge responsibility and I shall strive to the best of my ability to do justice to the position, the CIK, the FIA and the global karting community," Ebrahim said in a release.

"As a team, we will focus on further strengthening the top end of the karting pyramid and at the same time will lay a lot of emphasis on broad basing the sport at all regional, national and grass root levels."

The Commission Internationale de Karting ( CIK ) is the international sanctioning body for kart racing and consists of 37 members across the globe. UK's John Ryan has also been nominated as the vice-president of the Commission.
