The Astrakhan region became popular long time ago in the off-road rallies and the routes of the international marathons "Master rally", "Trans Orientale" and “Silk Way Rally" crossed its territory. This year the interest to local steppes and sands grows up because the new concept of the route of the 5th edition of Silk Way Rally includes start in Moscow and finish in Astrakhan.

In cars a very strong stuff of participants are expected. The double winner of last year's of this race Arthur Murashkin will drive the last version of an Overdrive Toyota Hilux with the powerful 5-liter engine, which was successfully tested at the "Italian Baja" in March, having taken the 12th place.

In the starting list the G-Force, "PEC", 4RALLY, ProtechMsport, Nart Time, Arthurs Racing, Yarovit yo-Motorsport and others teams with skilled crews and excellent cars are presented. Pilots are already keeping their arms on a pulse of race.

Dmitry Iyevlev (PEC team): "Last year we were very close to a podium, took the fourth place and won one day of race. This year are adjusted to come around on a podium and to be overcome for a victory! Race in Astrakhan is one of the brightest and interesting in a Championship calendar and the Cup of Russia, the organization is also one of the best so with great pleasure we participate here every year!"

Pavel Loginov (team 4RALLY): "I would note Gold of Kagan and Silk Way as the best Russian races which are carried out in a concept of rally raids and always organized at high level and with difficult sports route. This year these two events are especially close on geography therefore our main goal in Astrakhan will be to pass all distance of race and reach finish, to gather a form, to be rolled, successfully to and to be prepared for "A silk way 2013".

Oleg Tyupenkin (ProtechMSport team): "We are aimed to enjoy the race. Running with a correct tactic and without mistakes will be the key good result. In Italy me and my pilot (Arthur Murashkin) well worked together, I hope in Astrakhan everything will be fine! ".

In our category the rivals are really strong and many of them are already know the route therefore it will not easy to compete as equals, but I think, experience of the international races in Morocco and Italy will give us the chance to keep at the level of leaders! ".

Dmitry Agoshkov (Troyka team): “The main thing for me is to take experience and especially in navigation, because it is important matter in preparation for Rally of Morocco and other big international events.
