Arguably Morocco’s best racing driver, Mehdi Bennani was awarded with a special trophy offered by the Governor of the Rabat Region, represented by Mr Bennader, in recognition of his brilliant results achieved in the WTCC.
Bennani, who was classified tenth in the 2012 Drivers’ Championship, claiming two podium results at Budapest in a Proteam Racing BMW 320 TC car, has also been appointed ambassador of the campaign for road safety promoted by Morocco’s National Committee for Prevention of Traffic Accidents (CNPAC).
The campaign, named “Between life and death… 5 km/h” aims for educating road users to reduce speed by 5 km/h, adapting it to the traffic conditions. The figure of 5 km/h is just an excuse to make people aware of the benefits resulting by moderating their speed.
Mehdi Bennani delivers this message through a series of spots aired on Morocco’s national and regional TV channels and radio stations.
