New WEC agreement signed by FIA and ACO

The presidents of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), Jean Todt, and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), Pierre Fillon, have signed a three-year extension to the contract for the FIA World Endurance Championship, taking the partnership between the two organisations through until the end of the 2020 season.

The formal signing of the documents took place in front of the international media gathered at Silverstone for the opening race of the 2017 WEC season. Todt and Fillon were joined at the press conference about the current success of the WEC by president of the FIA Endurance Commission, Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones.

"I am delighted by this announcement of the extension of the cooperation agreement with ACO as promoter of FIA WEC," stated Todt. "Endurance racing is a fundamental part of the history of motor sport and I look forward to furthering the strong cooperation between the FIA and ACO teams."

"When we announced this partnership in 2011 a lot of people were sceptical," added Fillon. "I think we can say today, after five successful seasons and at the beginning of the sixth, this partnership is a success. We have a strong championship, the teams at the ACO and the FIA work together in a very constructive spirit. I want to thank Jean Todt for all he has done to create this championship. It is with great pleasure that I sign the extension to this partnership on behalf of the ACO."
