Over the years many meetings have taken place, some public, some private. In terms of protesting with placards, I am not in support of this activity. IMHO, this would have more negative results than positive. As far as the general population is concerned, they have more important things to worry about than "a bunch of 'privileged' racers" wanting a 'home' for motorsports. Education is they 'key' when engaging the general populous about motorsport.THE_FUGITIVES wrote:Is years Im seeing these Tuners balbbering about TTASA this and that never formed a lil meeting or small protest something to show them that we are concerned about their decisions , even if is Ten men outside an even with placards or something when an event is done shouting this and that because I am sure if i count the Users that Blab here , it will be around at least Ten lol , watch how noticed the highway re route protesters got.

The FIA is divided into 2 parts, on one hand you have Motosport - F1, WRC, etc, which is the world body for all things to do with competitive motorsport. The other side of FIA which is less known it seems to most Trinis is the Motoring / Mobility arm of the FIA. This side is equally as official in terms of rank and deals with everything to do with motoring with a large focus on Road Safety. They deal with everything from policies to deal with border patrols, road blocks, R.V regulations, etc. Their scope is very wide and deals with almost every aspect of road use.
TTASA is the Sporting Authority (i.e. ASN)
TTAA is the Motoring / Mobility Authority
Many of you may know that the President of the FIA is coming for a very short (1 night) in Trinidad in August, and will be attending the 100 year anniversary of the TTAA (yes i said 100 year anniversary). Now ask yourself what does Trinidad and Tobago have to show the President of the FIA.
TTAA - affiliated to Arrive Alive, involves many of the car manufacturers, has a dedicated number of persons with long service, and is actually doing what they are mandated to do.
TTASA - In charge of Drag Racing in Camden and........hmm struggling here....., not responsible for any of the competitive Rallying, Karting, or any other form of Motorsport in the Country, with the vast majority of the competitive groups actually choosing NOT to affiliate.
Is this right that after the so-called '40 years' of Motorsport that TTASA has little to show other than success in circuit and drag racing more than 2 decades ago. The most they can show is faded pictures of what was once considered a successful motorsport program. They can say that Trinis are doing well in foreign lands but i think the powers that be will know better than to believe that this has anything to do with present day TTASA.
Did i mention that the President/Chairman of the TTAA is Rawle Mahabir. At the risk of making a small joke. President of TTAA = slightly awkward moment for TTASA. Just think that all this time Rawle Mahabir has been an equal FIA affiliate in Trinidad and Tobago. Life does have its ironies, what can i say.
