The message reads, in part:
“Once again, you demonstrated your champion spirit and rightly conquered the entire pedestal. Your success is proof of the Russian Kamaz vehicles’ unrivalled possibilities.
I would like to particularly acknowledge the excellent work of the rally organisers. I am certain such remarkable projects promote international cultural cooperation, and strengthen friendship and understanding between peoples.”
The 2017 Silk Way Rally is an international rally raid off-road race through Russia, Kazakhstan and China.
