Khagan Gold Race Supported by Gazpromneft – Lubricants Ltd.

Khagan Gold Race’2016, the second stage of the Russian Rally Raid Championship, was held in Astrakhan Region with the support of Gazpromneft – Lubricants Ltd.

Traditionally, the race in Astrakhan brings together a large number of participants. This year the rally included more than 50 crews, setting a new record of the event. The race track was quite challenging, with sand, dunes and winding paths presenting added difficulty.

The event opened with a seven-kilometer leg along the Volga. The second, third, and final special race legs were 289, 278 and 245 kilometers respectively. The total length of all race legs, therefore, was about 800 km.

“This year our company has set up a special prize in the category of “Adapting to Any Circumstances.” At every stage of the Russian championship we present a G-Energy Motor Oil certificate to the crew with the most winning spirit,” says Roman Zimovets, Deputy General Director for Marketing and Strategic Development. “This time the prize went to Italian racer Pietro Fogliani, who rides his T2 (Production) class automobile alone, without a navigator, finding his way using his onboard navigation tools. Overcoming all the difficulties of the race, the Italian racer showed a good result at the Astrakhan event, taking the third place in his class. On one of the special legs he showed the best time in his group.”
