The FIA Smart Driving Challenge Season 2022 playoffs have ended, and we're excited to name the two drivers heading to the grand finale.
“Thierry” and “Neodyum”, both from France, and both sharing the FIA SDC team leader Sébastien Ogier, have beat off competition from around the world and will now go Head to Head in Bologna, Italy.
To claim their place in the grand finale they competed in the online playoffs against drivers from their home country, as well as Qatar, Italy, Poland, Sweden, Czechia, Norway, the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan, and Mauritius. It was a close contest, with just one point between the two finalists, and the driver in third place missing out by just one point.
“Thierry” and “Neodyum” will now compete in the live final in Bologna on 7 December. They will each take three drives in different vehicles, with a fourth drive in their favorite of the vehicles. The winning driver will be honored at a gala prizegiving evening on 9 December to coincide with the culmination of the FIA Annual General Assembly Week.
May the smartest driver win!
