Political shifts at the FIA

Eighteen months ago France's Jacques Regis was openly critical of Max Mosley'st policies and was even being mentioned as a possible candidate to face the FIA President in elections. Mosley talked regis into a new role as the supremo of world rallying and peace returned. Mosley was re-elected last autumn. Now three months later Regis has resigned from his position as the President of the World Rally Championship Commission, "in mutual agreement with the FIA", according to the federation's press statement. Regis himself is saying nothing. The Frenchman will continue in the role only until the next meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council which will be held in Paris on March 22. Regis has three years to run on his mandate as president of the Federation Francaise du Sport Automobile but is spending more time these days at a house he owns in Mauritius.
