Optifuel Challenge 2019 - Who will be the most eco-efficient national driver?

The 12 finalists for the National Final have been found

With the two national stages of the Optifuel Challenge 2019 complete – on the 4th of June at the Renacentro in Aveiro, and the 6th of June at Galius Santarém (where a tie between three competitors forced the organisation to take another 2 drivers through to the final) - the 12 finalists have been decided for the National Final which will take place at Galius Lisbon, in Castanheira do Ribatejo, on the 12th of June. This competition will find the most eco-efficient national driver, who will participate in the international grand finale in Lyon in October, with a chance to win one of the Renault T High Trucks used in the contest.

And the 12 finalist drivers are:

Fábio Costa - Camionagem de Carga Central da Vimieira, Lda. 
Manuel Oliveira - TDN, S.A. 
Nelson Sá - Transportes S. Luis 
Pedro Vieira - Transportes Pedro & Barros, Lda. 
Rui Moreira - Torrestir 
Paulo Brás - Fortuneroad 
Cláudio Alves - Gasogás 
Bruno Martins - Transportes Coelho Mariano 
Vitor Carvalho - TPCF 
Carlos Coimbra - Ribercer 
Fábio Rodrigues - Socicarril

Now in its fifth edition, the Optifuel Challenge is an eco-efficient driving competition organised by Renault Trucks. In total, more than 2000 drivers from all over the world will compete in their respective countries at the wheel of a Renault Trucks T High, and the driver selected in each country will go on to participate in the international grand finale.

Created in 2012 and with an overall focus on eco-efficient driving, the Optifuel Challenge incorporates the Renault Trucks’ commitment to encouraging drivers to save fuel from the very first mile, because reducing consumption does not solely depend on the vehicle.
