SLOVAKIA WINS THE RENAULT TRUCKS OPTIFUEL CHALLENGE 2019

CARLOS PAPELEIRA (RIBERCER) FINISHES 21st

Lyon the French city, Renault Trucks home, hosted the international finale of the Optifuel Challenge, an eco-driving competition organised by Renault Trucks. 25 drivers from 25 countries faced off in a theoretical exam and a practical test. Frantisek Oravec, a driver and manager of the Slovakian company of the same name, won the 5th edition.

The competition was split into two parts: the finalists answered a theoretical questionnaire that evaluated their eco-driving knowledge, for 10% of the final score. They then took the wheel of a Renault Trucks T480 Optifuel truck for an open-road driving test lasting around 40 minutes.

Carlos Papeleira (Ribercer), the winner of the 2019 Portuguese competition finished in the 21st position.

The Optifuel Challengeperfectly illustrates Renault Trucks’s comprehensive approach to vehicle-driver services and our commitment to helping our customers improve fuel efficiency. Our goal is to sustainably reduce fuel consumption from the very first kilometre.
