The Luzhniki Stadium is a buzz with participants from more than 30 countries ready to present their paperwork  and  have  their  race  vehicles  placed  under the  looking  glass  for  edition  6  of  the  “Silk Way Rally 2016”.   

The  technical  staff  will  put  the  race  vehicles  through  their  first  important  test,  scrutineering. Technical regulations will be enforced for all the categories. Nothing will be overlooked  on the cars, which the teams have spent the last several months readying for this moment.

Meanwhile,  the  final  touches  are  being  carried  out  between  the  Kremlin  and  Saint  Basil’s  Cathedral to create the ideal atmosphere to celebrate the long-awaited start of what promises to be a rally-raid for the ages !
