League Notes: Russian F1 Promoter Omega Center Reaches Agreement With RAF
Omega Center, the promoter of the Russian Grand Prix, said Monday that it has managed to resolve its contradictions with the Russian Automobile Federation "concerning the staging of the next year's event" (AFP, 8/5). ... The Int'l Hockey Federation (FIH) "has turned down former Indian captain Dilip Tirkey's proposal for increasing the number of teams in next year's World Cup." Tirkey had written to FIH President Leandro Negre "requesting him to increase the number of participating countries" in the next World Cup to be held in the Netherlands next year. Negre, however, said that "it is not possible" (PTI, 8/4).
