Free Opel Ampera for Europe's Greenest Driver

If you happen to consider yourself an eco-conscious driver, with the at most respect for nature and no respect at all for the cars cueing up behind you, waiting for you to pick up some speed, than Opel's ecoFLEX Experience competition is just the thing you needed.

In fact, even some of us, the aggressive, couldn't-care-less-if-the-trees-choke type of drivers may go for the competition. After all, Opel is giving away one of the first Opel Ampera cars ever built to the one who proves o be the greenest driver out there...

The ecoFLEX Experience kicks off on Fool's Day, with drivers throughout the continent having to show, in the first stage, "their fuel efficiency smarts" in an online quiz. After that, they are taken to an Internet simulator to show off their virtual driving and gas-saving abilities.

One driver from each for the 20 participating countries will be selected to take part in a multi-day event in Sweden this summer. The final green battle will take place at the Sturup Raceway in Malmo. The winner, as said, gets the Ampera, for free.

For the task, Opel will provide the wannabe Ampera owners models from its ecoFLEX series, including the Corsa 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX and the Astra 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX. Mind you, the Astra has a factory-claimed average of just 4.2 liters diesel per 100 kilometers, while the Corsa needs just 3.7 liters to go the same distance, so the competition might be harder than you think.

If you are considering taking part, you can register for the competition by following this link. The competition is only open for drivers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxemburg, France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Poland, Slovenia, Turkey and Russia.
