Apr.9 (GMM) Two more bodies from the world of international motoring have distanced themselves from embattled FIA president Max Mosley.
The Automobile Association (AA) in New Zealand has retracted an invitation for the 67-year-old Briton, accused of participating in a Nazi-themed romp with prostitutes, to visit the country later this year.AA spokesman Greg Hunting confirmed to Radio New Zealand that the body has asked Mosley to stay away from its transport and environment summit in June."I wrote to him late last week suggesting it might not be possible under the circumstances," he said."On the same day I received a note from him saying he regretted not being able to attend," Hunting added.Meanwhile, it is reported that Motorsport New Zealand is also reconsidering certain events that were to have the involvement of Mosley, spokesman Morrie Chandler revealed.Elsewhere, Canadian Automobile Association president Tim Shearman (CAA) is believed to have asked written to Mosley asking for his resignation.Former grand prix driver Hans-Joachim Stuck told Bild newspaper in Germany: "I am no saint, and each person can do with his personal life what he wishes."But Mosley is the leader of the FIA. He is a role model for young people."You know, (German chancellor) Angela Merkel and (former chancellor) Gerhard Schroder can't leap around on a nudist beach either," he added.Stuck said he is surprised that Mosley appears determined to fight the scandal even in the face of widespread condemnation."(Mosley) has missed doing the right thing, which was to quickly resign. What he is doing now, I can not understand," he added.
