In particular, visitors were happy to get a peak of the upcoming Gran Turismo video game, and test their reflexes at the wheel, taking part in an Action for Road Safety Challenge. 

On the FIA stand, they could also experience the wide-ranging activities of the Federation through a special 3D virtual presentation.

Among the most popular activities on the stand was a demonstration of the driver extrication test, using a real Formula 1 car. A team of marshals, under instruction from an FIA medical team, showed the public how to extract a driver in real conditions.

Finally, show-goers were able to print their own unique Golden Rules photo using a special booth.
