This was clear during my period as vice president in the last four years. There is no cooperation or coordination of FIM unions and clubs. We are living now at the end of 2014. However, I am optimistic for a better future with good cooperation and cooperation to clean the negative aspects…we seek to formulate new constructive ideas throughout organising great championships. This is what happened actually in Qatar, when we hosted many international championships in different fields and got many titles. The last championship award was for the circuit for motocross and Losail International Circuit as the best night circuit. All these successes were due to the permanent support of HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and the government of Qatar for their belief in the power of the Qatari human powers and skills that are able to achieve more Qatari achievements .

A part from organising many championships at Losail international Circuit in Qatar, Al Attiyah is behind much of the support of motor bike sports in the Middle East region, organising many championships such as Motocross Championship in Qatar which is considered the first of its kind. Moreover, Al Attiyah managed to make a fruitful cooperation with all unions members through his good relationship with FIM President, Vito Ippolito, who did his best to promote the motorsport all over the world.
Al Attiyah will enter the elections in the period between 19 to 25 November 2014 in Jerez, Spain.
