The FIA and Pirelli have recently signed a new long-term agreement in support of the FIA Action for Road Safety campaign. Alongside the partnership for road safety, Pirelli will remain a Global Partner of both the FIA Sport Conference and the FIA Mobility Conference.

As a Global Partner of the FIA Action for Road Safety campaign, Pirelli will promote the FIA Golden Rules for road safety through all of its networks. Pirelli will also organise training programmes and projects in collaboration with a selection of FIA Member Clubs to raise awareness on safe driving as well as take part in the FIA Road Safety Grant Programme.

During the FIA Sport Conference 2016 in Turin, Pirelli CEO Marco Tronchetti Provera said: “Safety has always been one of Pirelli's primary objectives. As well as being the maximum expression of high technology and performance, guaranteeing total driving pleasure, our tyres constantly strive to achieve the highest levels of safety, both for people and the environment.

As part of the new agreement, Pirelli will remain a Global Partner of the FIA Mobility Conference for the 2016 to 2019 editions. The 2016 FIA Mobility Conference in Helsinki provided a platform for Alberico Avogadro, Pirelli’s Consumer Marketing Director, to present Pirelli’s work in relation to mobility.

Finally, Pirelli is a Global Partner of the FIA Sport Conference for the 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 editions during which it has access to the key decision-makers of global motor sport. For the 2016 edition held in Turin, Pirelli CEO Marco Tronchetti was one of the speakers at the plenary session entitled “A passion for excellence – innovation and design; past, present and future”. Pirelli was also an exhibitor at the FIA Sport MotorEx, alongside 32 other industry stakeholders (see photo below).

Alongside this partnership, Pirelli is currently the exclusive tyre supplier of the FIA Formula One Championship.

The existing agreement will last until the end of 2019
