Following the previous qualifiers held in Zaragoza, Madrid and Valencia, the 14 best eco-drivers met last 7 and 8 July at Mas de Sant Lleí to compete for the national final of the Optifuel Challenge 2015 for Renault Trucks.
3 cities, 14 qualifiers, 270 participants and more than 9,000 kilometres of dynamic tests with 14 winners who competed in the final in Mas de Sant Lleí, whose winner would be the best eco-driver in the country, who will represent Spain in the international final.
The aim? To demonstrate the ability to drive economically by maintaining a competitive commercial speed through theoretical and road tests with Renault T Trucks.
The event, organised by the agency O2 Comunicación, opened with a dinner served on the Sant Esteve terrace on 7 July. The final kicked off the next day with a presentation in the Sant Esteve lounge and continued with training workshops in our inner courtyard. The Renault Truck trainers, their partners and Optifuel experts shared all their advice on how to save fuel on the road.
Simultaneously to the workshops, the dynamic tests were carried out in a circular circuit that started at the Mas de Sant Lleí.
After the workshops and the dynamic tests, participants enjoyed a cava tasting offered on the Santa Justa porch. After lunch, the winners of the final were announced.
From here, we wish the Spanish finalist a lot of luck in the international final.
