Much as in the event’s two previous incarnations (Vallelunga, Italy in 2009 and last year’s show at Millbrook, UK) an array of activities is being prepared to show delegates the potential of eSafety systems to save lives on our roads. A particular highlight will once again be the technology demonstrations opened by celebrity drivers and hands-on driving sessions for delegates that should not be missed.
Over 300 delegates and journalists are expected to attend the high-level conference, which will feature presentations from, among a distinguished line-up, FIA and eSafetyAware President, Jean Todt and Werner Kraus, President of ÖAMTC.
