This weekend in Bologna, Italy, one of the most awaited events of the year in the automotive community took place: the FIA (International Automobile Federation) Prize Giving gala.

Robots at the FIA Prize Giving

For the second year in a row, motorsport enthusiasts had the great pleasure of meeting the 2022 champions of the different categories managed by the FIA in telepresence.

Connected to a BeamPro® telepresence robot, from England, France and Ukraine, Lucas, Antoine and Ilona were able to exchange a few words with the winners, after the latter had collected their trophies: Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc, Sebastien Loeb, or Nasser al-Attiyah and Mathieu Baumel, the world rally-raid champions. The fans also had a chat with FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem and Formula 1 Director Stefano Domenicali.

This FIA initiative aims to encourage the inclusion of sports enthusiasts who are prevented from participating for reasons of health or distance: a successful mission to say the least!
