July 13 was the last day of the fifth Silk Way Rally that brought InstaForex Loprais Team the 21th place.
The Silk Way Rally, also known as the Russian Dakar for its challenging routes, involved the best teams from 27 countries. Extreme connecting sections totalling 2,800 km ran on sand, steppes, and rocky terrains of Volga region, Kalmykia as well as Volgograd and Astrakhan regions.
It was the first time the team comprised two crews. Such a combination was possible thanks to the newly-assembled truck Queen 69 — EVO II. The car was created in the image of Tatra, which took part in the Dakar 2012; so, this competition was a kind of crash test for it.
All the way long, from Moscow to Astrakhan, our team led by 2011 Silk Way Rally champion Ales Loprais demonstrated highly skilled craft and stunning results. The experimental truck has laudably toughed it out and is looking forward to new victories in Latin America next year.
We sincerely wish InstaForex Loprais Team successful tournaments and further triumphs!
