With the aim of rewarding and promoting sustainable driving and respect for the environment, the EcoSeries started this season in 2017 in an integrated way with the Costa Brava Historic Rally in Palamós on 22 April.
The competition takes place in different stages such as rallies, circuits or cities in order to enjoy ecological driving.
The objective of this initiative is to be a meeting point between energy efficiency and technological innovation through an open competition where the winner is not the one who goes faster, but the one that leads more efficiently and consumes less. Thus, it is a question of combining efficient driving and sport with innovative technologies by making it a part of the citizenship, offering you the opportunity to participate in an official competition that goes through the most famous circuits and sections and ascend to the top of the podium.
At the moment the classification of the competition is the following one:
1- Xevi Ardite & Elsa Sererols (BMW 218D Active Tourer) 556.1 points
2-Jordi Costa-Miquel Costa (Seat Altea XL GLP) 1572 points
