Another host is Ljubljana - European Green Capital for the year 2016! Although its size ranks among medium-sized European cities and preserves the attractive ambience of a small town, it has all the facilities of a modern capital – is the political and cultural heart of Slovenian nation, an important European trade, business, congress and fair center, as well as transport, science and educational capital of Slovenia.
EKOnova Rally Slovenia will take place between 30th of March and 2nd of April 2016. Drivers will race thru some of the most beautiful mountain passes in the southeastern Alps in Austria and Slovenia. They will race in 11 speed stages as well as one agility drive. The total length of Ekonova Rally Slovenia will be close to 1.000 kilometers.
Unique event, Eco Rally in Slovenia, will take place on 30th of march. Event, which central theme is ecology, will primarily promote eco-driving and sustainable mobility, furthermore the promotion is designed for ecologically-friendly cars as well. Given the fact that rally will take place in Slovenia as well as Austria, the event aims to promote cooperation between the two countries. Last but not least, the promotion of Bled - world famous tourist destination, known for its natural attractions – and Ljubljana – 2016 European Green Capital – is vital aspect of the event.
It is automotive eco-rally championship. The championship hosts cars that use any alternative fuel (electricity, hybrids, LPG or CNG, fuel cells, etc). Both serial and modified cars (electricity, gas) can take part, but must be homologated and registered. Cars are not allowed to be modified in any other way. For instance, roll cage and modifications of chassis are forbidden. Average speed of regularity tests must not exceed 50 km/h.
This is a competition where low energy consumption is very important; thus the participants learn economical driving. The best promotion is when people can test cars themselves, therefore this rally is the best opportunity, since it combines serious competition with fun. In addition to the Ekonova Rally Slovenia, we will organize a conference on sustainable mobility in Bled and Ljubljana. It will include prepared lectures and demonstrations - teaching how to drive in order consume as little energy as possible.
Our vision is that Ekonova Rally Slovenia becomes ecological movement on green transport. Anybody can participate as long as their car is powered by an alternative energy source. This is the only way to achieve that the competition becomes really massive. Drivers need to be educated on how to drive economically. This depends not only on the car! This is a competition where low energy consumption is very important.
