Following the widely reported and devastating news regarding the recent huge earthquake in Türkiye and Syria, the FIM has responded to an urgent appeal by the Turkiye Motorcycling Federation (TMF) by sharing the request for vital equipment with its national federations and the wider motorcycling community.
To summarise the situation:
The roads in the earthquake affected area were severely destroyed, meaning that medicine and rescue teams can only reach these regions by using off-road motorcycles and quads.
However, this challenge is made even more testing by the severe weather conditions and temperature in the area that can drop as low as -18 Celsius.
Hence the riders desperately need the following equipment to allow them to successfully complete their missions:
- Thermal riding gears (M-L-XL-XXL)
- Motorcycle Winter Boots (Sizes: 38-39-40-41-42-43-44-45)
- Thermal motorcycling gloves
- Thermal underwear
- Backpack (suitable for carrying medicine)
- Motorcycle Goggles
- Motorcycle tyres that can be used on snow and offroad (Sizes:17-18-19-20-21)
- Motorcycle helmet (Sizes: S-M-L-XL-XXL)
- Small/portable/transportable camping tents and sleeping bags
Please note materials may also be used materials in the case where their condition is suitable for reuse.
Please send all equipment to:
Turkiye Motorcycling Federation
