Paris-Peking-Istanbul: a golden route for AfRS

Teams in the FFCC Paris-Peking-Istanbul adventure, led by FFCC President Gérard Couté gave FIA Action for Road Safety their enthusiastic support by displaying the campaign’s Golden Rules for Safer Motoring on their vehicles.

The Paris-Peking-Istanbul journey sees thirty six teams travelling from France to Istanbul via: Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine, Mongolia, China, Kirghizstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Russia. As the participants pass through Europe and Asia on a 30,000 km adventure, their camper vans will display large scale versions of the FIA’s Golden Rules in a variety of languages including: Russian, Mandarin Chinese and Turkish allowing the universally important message of safer motoring to reach road users in ten countries.

Speaking to the teams at the launch of the Paris-Perking-Istanbul this weekend Jean Todt said:
" This year the Paris-Peking-Istanbul event will support a humanitarian mission focused on assisting Mongolian children run by the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation and will see participants deliver clothing and school supplies in Mongolia."
