The promoters of rally events refuse the conditions of the contracts imposed by the WRC Commission to integrate next year's calendar.
The rallies wanting to be part of the 2013 WRC calendar must sign and return the porposed contract to the FIA before Friday.
If the conditions that are imposed by the WRC Commision to be part of next season have not been revealed, it appears that an additional 100 000 euros (around 130 000 canadian dollars) must be paid to cover various costs such as timing and the promotion of the event.
The president of the French motorsport federation, Nicolas Deschaux, backed by several other promoters, is against such a contract and he has sent a letter expressing his concerns to Jarmo Mahonen, the president of the WRC commission.
"We remind you that the internal regulations of the WRC Commission states that its mission is to define the agenda of the WRC and propose it to the World Council," wrote Deschaux. "It is not reported a validation by the Commission with a condition to signing a contract with the FIA ."
"We also remind you that no constitutional power allows you, as president of the Commission, subject to defining the agenda of a rule determined by your own initiative and without a legal basis."
"Finally, the procedure you followed for the second time, by sending a contract to be signed and returned in a short time, is completely unacceptable... This is contrary to the principle of good faith that should dictate all negotiations between the FIA and organizers, some of whom are members of the FIA."
"For this reason, even beyond the important legal and regulatory issues raised in the contract that you offer, the process that you adopted must be questioned and denounced. If you insist in this way, we will consider appealing to the World Motor Sport Council to arbitrate."
