A crew from the Monaco’s Town Hall won the third edition of the Riviera Electric Challenge on Tuesday April 11.

Thirty-six teams included three crews from the Monaco City Council: Deputy Mayor Françoise Gamerdinger and Municipal Councilor Karyn Ardisson-Salopek, Municipal Councilor Claude Bollati and Axelle Amalberti-Verdino, and Secretary General Hélène Zaccabri with Municipal employee Serge Pastor, were on the starting line at 9 am at the Port of Cros-de-Cagnes.

A true eco-driving challenge, the course stretched for about 85 kilometres, crossing 12 towns in the Alpes-Maritimes while publicising the EVER Monaco salon, currently taking place at the Grimaldi Forum.

Participants were rated both on consumption control – aiming at minimum consumption and without battery recharge – and on their ability to respond to a questionnaire on sustainable development along the route.

At the end of the day, Françoise Gamerdinger and Karyn Ardisson-Salopek, driving a Renault ZOE, won the Challenge, ahead of Imredd in second place, followed by SAP and Air Paca on the third step of the podium.
