There was drama on day one of the 2018 Silk Way Rally. Nani Roma had to retire ill, while the wonderful sounding Toyota Hilux of Nasser Al Attiyah was victorious over the stage for the cars. In the truck class, Dmitry Sotnikov continued on his way to win the stage and save Kamaz’s honour.
The Silk Way Rally is back. Astrakhan plays host to an intense week of cross country action on the way to Red Square in Moscow. Competitors from around the world have been preparing their teams and vehicles for 3,500kms of what is commonly considered one of the toughest tests in the world.
