Monaco Grand Prix and other auto racing events from 25 to 28 June

The Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee present at Monaco F1 Grand Prix and other auto racing events from 25 to 28 June 2017

CAs had already been the case for the Monaco ePrix which took place in the Principality on 13 May 2017, three experienced members of the Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee, namely Ms. Heidi Müller, Mr. Rémi Garoscio and Mr. Dominique Lucas, have been made available to the Monaco Automobile Club.

According to the International Standard for Testing and Investigation, which is one of the constituent parts of the World Anti-Doping Program, including the World Anti-Doping Code, several International Standards and Models of Good Practice and Guidelines, a chaperone is an « official who is specifically trained and authorized by the ADO to carry out specific duties including: notification of the athlete selected for sample collection; accompanying and observing the athlete until arrival at the Doping Control Station;; and/or witnessing and verifying the provision of the sample where the training qualifies him/her to do so ».

     That is to say how important is the chaperone role that such an official assures in the doping control process : on the one hand, it is the first contact which the athlete is dealing with to perform the doping control ; on the other hand, he is responsible for the regularity of the individual stages of the notification procedure and, where appropriate, for his participation in the sampling procedure.

   CAs had already been the case for the Monaco ePrix which took place in the Principality on 13 May 2017, three experienced agents of the Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee, namely Ms. Heidi Müller, Mr. Rémi Garoscio and Mr. Dominique Lucas, have been made available to the Monaco Automobile Club to face any assumption of unannounced doping control during days of free practice and Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula Renault and the Porsche Mobil Supercup racing that took place from Thursday 25 May to Sunday 28 May 2017.

   The Committee thanks the Monaco Automobile Club for the trust placed in our volunteers who work towards the same overall goal of promoting a clean sport.
