FIA Prize Giving Ceremony

The FIA Prize Giving Ceremony is an annual event promoted by Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) which honours the achievements of all FIA Champions over the past season.

In 2014 FIA inaugurated a new format where FIA Champions and guests take part in a competition held at a karting track designed by Hermann Tilke, under the direction of F1 race director Charlie Whiting. The day culminates with a glamorous two-part ceremony celebrating the FIA champions. The winners of the Personality of the Year and Action of the Year awards will be unveiled that same evening, as will brand new Rookie of the Year award and Pole Position trophy.[1]
