The Silk Way Rally was first held in 2009, connecting Russia, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan. Then the race took place on the initiative of the presidents of the three states and with their personal participation in the awards ceremony. The name "Silk Road" emphasizes the Eurasian nature of the marathon and its connecting role for the countries of the Great Silk Road region. From 2010 to 2013, about a thousand athletes from 30 countries of the world took part in the rally driving SUVs and trucks.
Rally "Silk Way" started on July 6 in Irkutsk.
For the first time in the history of the rally, a motorcycle classification of the International Motorcycle Federation (FIM) has been introduced.
In the standings of ATVs, our country is represented by Alexander Maksimov, who is the reigning world champion!
Off-road vehicles are the most massive category of the "Silk Road" - more than 50 crews came to the start. 12 Russian crews will fight for victory. Among them are Andrey Rudskoy, holder of the International Automobile Federation #FIA World Cup in rally-raids in the T2 standings, and Russian classic rally champions Sergey Uspensky, Evgeny Sukhovenko and Alexei Ignatov. In the T3 standings, the favorite will be Sergey Karyakin, the DAKARA champion in the ATV standings, and the only racer in the car standings, Tatyana Sycheva, will also compete in the same category.
China has the largest representation in the off-road standings at the start of the rally - 19.
