Since 2011, the FIA and Michelin have partnered on more than 15 programmes, covering almost all the aspects addressed by the FIA Action for Road Safety campaign in countries such as Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Thailand and the United States. They have recently renewed their partnership on road safety and for the FIA Prize-Giving with a new agreement.

Michelin is a Global Partner of both the FIA Action for Road Safety and the FIA Prize-Giving. In terms of road safety, this long-term relationship has produced significant results. For example, the FIA and Michelin have joined forces in the United States to raise awareness among young drivers on the importance of regular tyre checks and tyre maintenance. The Beyond the Driving Test campaign offers teenagers new resources to help them and their parents to brush up on their own car and tyre maintenance skills, including a downloadable glove compartment guide with key tips.

The campaign has been supported with videos featuring popular teenage YouTube stars and has won numerous prestigious PR awards, such as the “Community Relations Campaign of the Year” award at the PRWeek US Awards 2016 and the “Corporate Social Responsibility Campaign of the Year” award at the 2016 SABRE Awards.

As part of this partnership, Michelin also supports the FIA Road Safety Grant Programme, an initiative launched by the FIA in 2012. Since its inception, Michelin has supported programmes in countries like Latvia, Australia, Sri Lanka, Mexico, India, Australia, Ecuador and Peru.

Michelin is also accompanying the FIA in its end of season ceremony, the FIA Prize-Giving, which sees champions from every major branch of international motor sport gather to receive their official FIA awards during a unique star-studded evening.
