After one week of tough competition, where cars and trucks had to face numerous difficulties, the 2018 Silk Way Rally came to an end. Yazeed Al Rajhi triumphed in the cars class in his Mini Cooper, while Andrey Karginov won the trucks category for the Kamaz team.
In the cars, Nasser Al-Attiyah won the second stage of the 2018 Silk Way Rally in his Toyota Hilux, but only with front wheel drive after the rear differential failed. In the trucks category, Team Kamaz-Master were back on form with six-out-of-six.
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.
