To all Class V1 teams:
We are all sadly aware of the special situation we have for 2016 without a promoter for our classes. COTA has been constantly in dialogue with the UIM through the year trying to resolve this situation, but until now without a positive outcome.
The UIM have now decided to accept the offer from FIM/Chioggia to stage the UIM V1 World Championship together with the Class 3D WC in Chioggia, Italy 14th - 18th September, while the situation for Class 1 is not yet resolved.
The UIM have already put the event on the UIM website, but the V1 WC race format and the overall event program have not yet been finalized with the Local Organizer and FIM.
All the basic elements regarding safety, rescue, cranes etc. are in place in Chioggia, but the organiser will not be able to provide appearance money or travel support to the V1 teams.
For the UIM to be sure that the event will not fail to meet the demands from the rules and regulations, we are now asking the V1 teams to confirm their intention to participate in this World Championship in Chioggia, Italy 14th - 18th September.
Please reply A.S.A.P. to COTA at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our team has the intention to participate in the UIM V1 World Championship in Chioggia, Italy 14th - 18th September
