At the Automobile Club de Monaco today, HSH Princess Charlene and Prince Albert II of Monaco cheered on the competitors at the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual, a first in the world of endurance esports. The royal couple are supporting the #54 Strong Together Ferrari, which sports the colours of the principality and the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.




In their sim racing cockpit Francesco Castellacci, Giancarlo Fisichella and Tony Mella share driving duties with Felipe Massa in Brazil, with whom they have on-screen contact. Strong Together’s message to the race’s worldwide audience is to pool resources in the fight to contain Covid-19.



The #54 crew all relay that sentiment and support the appeal for donations via the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation. All donations will be gratefully received via



 https://donate.fondationprincessecharlene.mc/strongtogether

 



An on-screen counter will show the total amount donated during the race. All donations will be sent to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance for medical research for a Covid-19 vaccine and equal access to vaccines for all.



In a live interview during coverage of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual, HSH Prince Albert II emphasised the importance of the race in technological advancement. To HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco, starter of the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans, the human interconnectedness of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual sets the tone for generosity.




Carried by Princess Charlene of Monaco and Her foundation, a call for donations throughout the race, launched at 3 p.m. at the start of the race, will conclude on Sunday at 3 p.m., of this first unprecedented initiative combining competition and engagement.



HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco
: “This appeal for donations during the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual was important to me. The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation exists to save lives. Generosity plays a key role in medical research.”
