9th Annual"Racing Goes Safer" Driver Safety Seminar at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach
Saturday, April 9th, 2022
Long Beach Convention Center, Rooms 203 A,B&C
The Racing Goes Safer Safety Seminar returned to the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach with a diverse group of speakers and topics during its three hour, action packed agenda on April 9, 2022.
Beginning with a video message for the group from popular IndyCar driver Romain Grosjean, the theme of the first hour was fire. The French/Swiss pilot referenced his own crash and fire at the Bahrain F1 race in 2000, which reinforced the need to be prepared, because you never know when something might happen resulting in fire.
In the case of the following speaker, Romain Morizot knew beforehand what was going to
happen, as he had volunteered to be set afire to show his faith in the personal safety equipment produced by his company, Stand 21. At one point he described the demonstration as a stunt, but as a result he still felt somewhat connected to what his customers have to be prepared for if something bad happens.
