The new agreement builds upon the successful cooperation between FIM and

laboratories. Intertek personnel will be on-site at selected FIM events,
performing real-time, on-track, fuel compliance testing, for Superbike,
Motocross, Endurance, and other races.

As part of the strategic partnership, Intertek will assist FIM with fuel
approval process support, as well as updating FIM management on updated fuel
regulations and developing quality and testing standards.

Motocyclisme, said:

“FIM has benefited from having Intertek’s fuel testing and consulting
expertise, and we are pleased to extend this agreement for an additional three
years. Intertek’s technical know-how and ability to provide quick results
