|Africa Eco Race: Russian Kamaz Master Team with two trucks in 2015 edition.|
Rumors were growing more and more these passed weeks concerning the possible return of the Russian Kamaz Master Team on the [ AFRICA ECO RACE ]. Now it´s official: The Kamaz Team has confirmed their participation on the 7th edition of the Africa Eco Race (AER) with two racing trucks.
Remember, on the AER 2013, Kamaz had registered a truck with two young racers of which Anton Shibalov was part of. For Shibalov, first of all, it was his first experience on the african tracks but also, it gave him the chance to be part of the legend "on Dakar-founder Thierry Sabine’s footsteps" by winning his first race.
This year, Anton Shibalov is back and its going to be tough with opponents such as Tomas Tomecek of TOM Racing with his Tatra and Elisabete Jacinto of MAN Portugal with her MAN TGS, which were also on the podium in 2013. But Shibalov will not be the only one defending the Kamaz Team - Sergey Kuprianov will fight on the tracks as well.
After having tested their machines in Morocco, bets are open that on the next edition of the Africa Eco Race, its going to be a real sporting spectacle between the trucks. Case to follow from december 28th 2014...
