The Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI) has elected the chairman and managing director of the Raymond Group, Gautam Singhania to represent India at the FIA's World Motor Sport Council (WMSC).

Singhania replaces Vijay Mallya who was asked to step down from the post earlier this year. The owner of the Force India F1 team and Kingfisher Airlines is wanted on charges of tax evasion and fraud. He had resigned in July 2017. Following Mallya's resignation, former FMSCI president Vicky Chandhok was deputed for the job.

Meanwhile, Akbar Ebrahim has been nominated for the deputy post. Both Singhania and Ebrahim now need to get elected for the positions in WMSC. Elections for positions in WMSC are scheduled to be held in Paris in December 2017.

Many congratulations to Gautam and Akbar! Both have been actively involved with the sport and the expectation is that the sport gets a lot more focus and support in India.
