«Perfectly in the spirit of rally-raid»!

Revealed today at 3.00 pm at the RIA NOVOSTI in Moscow, the Silk Way 2012’s route has already received the approval of the competitors. It should be said that with a 70% of new route, the organizers have reconsidered the event to offer to the competitors, 15% of additional special stages and 40% of less road sections.

«What a good news!» says Krzysztof Holowczyc, the winner of the 2011 edition, filled with enthusiasm. «The Silk Way Rally is one of the most important rallies of the year, since this is the longest race after the Dakar. This is thus the best preparation, especially for my team, which still has a lot of work to improve our new engine. Therefore the increase of special stages and the diminution of the road sections is very good news, as we will be able to test the car, mechanics having more time to work at night.

In addition, I am glad that there is more sand in the program, since I must improve my driving abilities in this field. No really, only good news, I’m looking forward to be there…»

«During my 1st participation last year, I had already thought that it was a very nice event, marked by the diversity of the terrains», confessed on his side, Stéphane Peterhansel. «But, on some legs the total kms were higher than on the Dakar, because of the road sections. To shorten them in order to lengthen the special stages is a very good news, that reinforces my desire to return there!»

«Our cars are not made for long road sections, so it is perfect to have less of them», confirms Christian Lavieille. «But what I retain above all is the novelty of the route and the big proportion of sand, because, for me, the more there is, the toughest the route is, the best!

And then, this is the soul of rally-raid to leave towards the unknown, to the discovery of new terrains. This is what we love and this year’s changes are perfectly in this spirit!...»

«Clearly, the organizers took last year’s criticisms into account, like the increase of sandy zones or the finish in Ghelendzhik, as the last road section to Sochi was really painful in 2011. Moreover, talking about landscape, I do not think we will lose anything! », concludes André Dessoude, the team manager of the team wearing his name. «Finally, for our customers, the renewal of the route is excellent news, since this puts everybody to the same foot of equality, the pilots coming for the 1st time will have, indeed, more chances to compete with the ones who have already raced the event.»
