Rules - how to join the FIA Smart Driving Challenge 2022

The FIA Smart Driving Challenge is the world's first challenge rewarding smart skills at the wheel. It is a global competition where everyday drivers can challenge each other and themselves to become smarter on the road. It's a way to improve the environment, and safety on the roads - globally. The challenge is a collaboration between the FIA, the global governing body for motorsport and mobility and Swedish insur-tech Greater Than.

Outside of the competition you can drive as much, or as little, as you like. See all important dates in the calendar.

Individual competition
When downloading the FIA SDC app and creating an account you automatically join the FIA Smart Driving Global Challenge.

The challenge consists of seven heats, each spanning over one calendar month. The top three drivers of every heat get selected for online playoffs – a special event where all the best performers of the year, within different categories, drive to qualify in the final.

The final is a live challenge where the top two performers from the playoffs will go head to head in one final last challenge – deciding who will be the winner of the FIA SDC 2022.
The rules
The rules for the FIA Smart Driving challenge 2022 are as following:
• The individual driver score is calculated on an average based on the top 10% trips.

• Compete in a minimum of 3 out of 4 weeks of a heat in order to qualify for the final. 

• Every trip over 1 km during a heat is included in the scoring.

• Total distance driven during a heat must exceed 10 km.

• The same geographical route will only be scored twice in one day.
Official team leaders and teams
Joining a team leader is mandatory for those participating in the FIA SDC Global Challenge in order for you to have a certified professional as coach. You compete as an individual but your team also joins the challenge as a community – working together to create positive change on the roads. If you do not choose a team leader while signing up, we will assign you in one of the teams.

Scoring in teams is calculated as per below:
• The average of the top 20 drivers in a team plus 2% of the other team members scores.

• The final will take place in December 2022.
