Eco is a shorter form for Economy, in this case for fuel economy. EcoRun is a motor racing, where the idea is to promote the fuel-efficient driving techniques, which can be applied to every-day motoring. The racing vehicles are standard production motorcars and often taken straight from the dealers´ showrooms. The race takes place in the typical traffic conditions, although some of the racing is done during the night hours. Modifications having an impact on fuel consumption are not allowed. The racing arena is challenging and the self-made training emphases the importance of day-to-day driving skills.
