The Fiat Panda Natural Power, Italy's best-selling alternative fuelled production car has just been a protagonist in the fourth edition of Ecorally, where it won the class for methane-powered vehicles. The dual petrol/methane-powered Panda, was entered in Ecorally San Marino by a team from EcoMotori, while other Fiat representatives in the two-day event included a Marea, Doblò, 500, Grande Punto and Barchetta, as well as an Alfa Romeo MiTo.
The route of this fourth edition took the crews from the start line in the Republic of San Marino, via Sansepolcro, Gubbio, Assisi, Torgiano and Spoleto before the end of leg one was reached at Magliano Sabina. The next day, the second and final leg saw the cars continuing on their path through central Italy, travelling to Rome and Castelgandolfo before the event finished in the Vatican City.
Ecorally San Marino was born in 2006 when it started from Piazza San Pietro in the Vatican City before arriving San Marino. It is an international race controlled by F.I.A. regulations and its aim is to promote and develop alternative energy-powered vehicles with low environmental impact.
This new kind of competition, exclusively tuned to ecological vehicles, is consistent with the innovative nature of automotive sporting competitions where in the past just like in the present many technical concepts are tested through competition. This event intends to show off to the spectators the performance of these vehicles and their adaptability to daily use. The Regularity and Consumption tests are two different kinds of the Driving Test that the F.I.A. has introduced to these competitions. Entrants obtain a single score, deriving from the absolute classification. This score is valid for F.I.A. Competitors Test and for III & IIIA Categories, for IV, VII & VIII Categories and also for F.I.A. title, reserved for manufacturers.
