Lotus F1 Team joins the Peace One Day Education Monaco Gala

Lotus F1 Team, through its partnership with Peace One Day, will join the stars at a special Gala on May 22 to support Peace One Day Education and to raise awareness of the Democratic Republic of Congo / Great Lakes Peace Project.

Jude Law and Jessie J will be among the familiar faces at the special event at the famous Salle des Etoiles, Monaco. Under the patronage of H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco the event will see a special auction take place where members of the public will be able to bid beforehand to win unique prizes donated by Lotus F1 Team amongst others.

From the team, Romain Grosjean, Pastor Maldonado and Deputy Team Principal Federico Gastaldi will attend to show their support for the Peace One Day Education initiative.

Romain Grosjean’s front wing used in last season’s Indian Grand Prix will be one of the headline lots on offer, as will a chance to sample a day as a Lotus F1 Team driver with an iRace package. Members of the public are able to bid for these and other exceptional experiences/prizes prior to the event via peaceoneday.org

Federico Gastaldi Lotus F1 Team Deputy Team Principal

“The event is already being billed as the premier social event of this year’s Monaco Grand Prix and Monaco is a special place both on and off the track. The Peace One Day Education event is a very worthy and exciting occasion and naturally Lotus F1 Team is very proud to be associated with it via our partnership with Peace One Day.”

The Peace One Day Education Monaco Gala takes place on Thursday 22nd May from 8pm at the Salle des Etoiles, Monaco.

About Peace One Day

Peace One Day, founded by British filmmaker Jeremy Gilley, led the initiative 15 years ago to establish an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence with a fixed calendar date. The day was unanimously adopted in 2001 by United Nations member states, fixed as September 21 – Peace Day. With the day in place, Peace One Day’s objective is to institutionalise Peace Day 21 September, making it a day that is self-sustaining, an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known.

Peace Day has also been proved as a window of opportunity for humanitarian organisations to focus their ongoing life-saving activities within a global context, most notably in Afghanistan, where 4.5 million children have been immunized against polio due to Peace Day agreements since 2007. With analytics support from McKinsey & Company, Peace One Day believes that almost half a billion people were aware of Peace Day in 2013, with around 8 million

behaving more peacefully as a result of being involved in activities on the day. Peace One Day's target for 2014 is to reach 1.5 billion people with the message of Peace Day, and 3 billion people by Peace Day 2016.

The newspapers, naturally, lingered over Max Mosley’s tainted family history and niche sexual practices. But this is to trivialise the legacy of a big beast of motor racing politics. Stuart Codling weighs the life of a man whose work for safety on both road and track has saved hundreds of thousands of lives, but whose penchant for cruelty remains problematic and polarising.
