Stage 1 of SMP RSKG Endurance: start of the fight for the Russian Cup and a sea of ​​entertainment

On May 11, a 4-hour marathon will be held at Moscow Raceway with the participation of the best pilots in the country.

On May 11, the Moscow Raceway autodrome near Moscow will become the arena for the battle of the most famous Russian pilots. They will have to cover over 500 kilometers in a tense struggle, stopping only for refueling and changing tires.

Spectacular supercars of the international category GT4, fast sports prototypes BR03 and Ligier JS53, touring cars of national level – they will all take to the start of the 1st stage SMP RSKG Endurance series. These are the most prestigious competitions in the country in the status of the Russian Cup, held by the Russian motorsport development program SMP Racing.

Viewers will enjoy an extensive entertainment program.

Drift taxi and “World Cuisines”: time will fly by unnoticed

Spectators will have a unique opportunity not only to look at powerful equipment up close, but also to communicate with titled pilots at an autograph session while walking along the pit lane.

You can refresh your strength at any time at the Food Truck Festival “Cuisines of the World”, which will take place in the spacious paddock of the Moscow Raceway.

Fans of speed and drive can become passengers in racing and drift taxis.

And those who want to get behind the wheel of the unique Russian sports prototype BR03 and race along the race track will be able to do this behind the wheel of professional simulators.

Special conditions for those who choose a Premium ticket: they will have a unique opportunity to follow the progress of the fight from the VIP box, access to the starting line just before the start of the race, and even excursions to the team pits during the marathon!

4 hours of fight: Russian Cup favorites

Each crew has up to three pilots, who will take turns get behind the wheel. The most famous are SMP Racing program participants Vitaly Petrov and Sergey Sirotkin: they have dozens of races in Formula 1, as well as a victory in the last season of SMP RSKG Endurance. As before, they will start on the domestic sports prototype BR03, created by the Russian company BR Engineering.

A similar car will be at the disposal of two other SMP Racing drivers, Alexander Smolyar and Kirill Smal, known for their achievements in foreign formula competitions. Another BR03 will be piloted by Kirill Ladygin, winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and his partner Ivan Chubarov, a multiple champion of Russia.

And, of course, we cannot help but mention another crew from the SMP Racing program: Irina Sidorkova will be accompanied at this stage by Alexander Bolduev.

It is here, in the fastest Group F, that the battle for overall victory will unfold. After all, pilots on Russian sports prototypes will be opposed by participants on the French model Ligier JS53. One of these “barchettes” will be at the disposal of Kirill Kirakozov and Mikhail Loboda, the second – with the crew of Alexey Khairov, Sergey Ievlev and Alexey Chernov.

Cars of the GT4 class are not much inferior in speed to the sports prototypes of Group F, while their pilots claim victory not only in the “absolute”, but also in their classification. Here the main contenders for the Russian Cup are Rinat Salikhov and Sergei Borisov, who have won victories in prestigious international tournaments, and Denis Remenyako and Adam Christodoulou, who have won victories in various competitions more than once.
