Moscow — Xi’an

Once again, the race took a form of transcontinental marathon but this time the route went from Moscow to Xi’an, an ancient Chinese capital. During their long journey the competitors crossed the forests of Ufa and Chelyabinsk regions, covered Kazakh steppes and finally reached the Gobi Desert with its world’s highest dunes. Despite continuous rains that followed rally caravan all the way long, the drivers successfully got to Xi’an. The first place in car category was taken by Cyril Despres (TEAM PEUGEOT TOTAL), and the championship in trucks went to Dmitry Sotnikov (KAMAZ-master).
