Stoker's manifesto, entitled 'FIA for All', covers every area of motorsport development from safety and education to diversity and access.
Key objectives include:

Stoker has chosen nine-time Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen as his running mate as Deputy President for the FIA.
“I’m delighted to present this comprehensive vision for the future of motorsport worldwide," said Stoker.
"We want to build on the strong work of the FIA over the last 12 years and create a sport that is truly progressive, representing all nations and open to anyone that wants to get involved, regardless of background or finances.
“This is the first opportunity to work with my impressive Deputy President for Sport candidate Tom Kristensen and we will be using our deep experience at all levels of motorsport to implement these ideas worldwide.”
