Uncini gets FIM safety role

Franco Uncini takes over from Claude Danis as the FIM's Grand Prix Safety Officer and circuit inspector.
Following the retirement of Claude Danis, the FIM has appointed Franco Uncini as its Grand Prix Safety Officer and Circuit Inspector.

The 1982 500cc world champion for Suzuki, Uncini ended his riding career in 1985, returning as Ducati Team Manager in World Superbike the year Doug Polen took the title.

At the end of 1992, he was chosen by the grand prix riders to represent them as 'IRTA Riders Safety Delegate' starting in the 1993 season. He worked closely with Danis in the Grand Prix Race Direction and for the circuit homologations.

The 58-year-old took up his new position at the beginning of February.

Danis was a member of the FIM Road Racing Commission (CCR) from 1991 and Chairman of the CCR from 1993 to 2010. From 1999 onwards, he was also FIM Representative in the Grand Prix Race Direction.
