The motto says it all: "Green Drivers Wanted!" Vauxhall is looking for Europe's greenest driver as part of its ecoFLEX Experience, a unique competition where entrants can show off their fuel-efficient, environmentally friendly driving skills.
Kicking off on 1st April 2010, Vauxhall will be looking for UK drivers to take part in a pan-European competition which it is jointly running with sister company, Opel. The contest will set out to find the driver who can squeeze the most mileage from one of Vauxhall/Opel's ecoFLEX models. But first, entrants will need to prove their eco-mettle in an on-line quiz, before proving their virtual driving and fuel-saving skills on an internet simulator.
The very best 'driver' from the UK along with 19 other participating European countries will then be invited to a multi-day event at the Sturup Raceway in Malmo, Sweden this summer. Here, contestants will receive professional tuition in a range of ecoFLEX models and the greenest driver overall will be named the "ecoFLEX Experience Champion".
And the prize? The winner will be awarded one of the very first Vauxhall Ampera production cars, which will hit the UK Market at the start of 2012.
