The tour covers 582 kilometres, but the RAC designed two alternative routes of less kilometres for electric vehicles, as they do not have the necessary drive range to complete the longer route. In turn, the winner will be the vehicle that consumes less fuel and not the faster one. “Cars may not exceed 50 kilometres per hour, or they will be penalized,” said Luis Murguia, vice president of the RAC.
The III Vasco Navarro Eco Rally will feature European champion drivers such as Antonio Zanini and Enrique Garcia Ojeda, and several Italian and French teams. Journalists from automotive magazines will also contest. The competition is held under the FIA’ rules (International Automobile Federation) and is one of the races that count for the World Cup Eco Rally, organized by the Paris-based entity.
