Third edition of FIM Off-Road Awards in Monte Carlo this weekend
After another great season of Off Road Motorsports it is time to celebrate the Champions in what has become one of the most popular and fashionable ceremonies in the world: the FIM Off Road Awards, to be held on the forthcoming Saturday 1st of December.
The event was first promoted by Youthstream in 2005, giving the Off Road Motorsports their dedicated awards ceremony, and including both the World and the European Champions.
Once again the FIM Off Road Awards will start at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel, where a press conference will take place at 6.00 pm. At 8.30 pm the guests and the Champions will move to the fantastic Salle Des Etoiles, which is at the Sporting Club right next to the Hotel. The Salle Des Etoiles is an incredible salon surrounded by glass walls offering a fantastic view on the bay of Monte Carlo.
The massive celebration, which saw over 300 guests last year, will start then, and it will be something unforgettable.
