On July 1, a solemn ceremony of the start of the international Silk Way Rally was held in Omsk.
Seven trucks of the KAMAZ-master team, which is traditionally one of the favorites of the world rally raids, take part in the rally.
Luc Alfan, the Sports Director of the Silk Way Rally: “In addition to the spirit of adventure and amazing discoveries, the international Silk Way Rally will present a completely new route that has never been used in the race. This edition promises to be magical, with an exceptional line-up of participants in both the FIM World Rally Raid Championship and the FIA World Rally Raid Cup. The terrain of the track along the entire route of the race promises to be diverse and complex.”
