I cannot think of a better example of competition than the 2022 European Tram Championship. Teams of tram drivers from all over Europe compete in a series of six challenges to see which team is the best at driving the tram.
Each challenge is clearly designed to demonstrate a complete understanding of how to drive safely and with care for the passengers and other people around them, that is why the Trams simulate billiards, bowling, and other challenges. Ultimately the team must also do it quickly by racing between each tram and for the buttons to start and stop the timer.
Some day I hope it will be safe to travel again so I can attend the European Tram Championship in person.
