The Silk Road Rally, recently granted the status of a Dakar Series Race, ended September 18 in a town near the Black Sea resort city of Sochi.

On Saturday, 48 SUV off-road racing crews from 25 countries and 16 truck racing crews left Maikop and headed toward Krasnaya Polyana near Sochi, racing across the Greater Caucasus Range and along the Black Sea coast.

The Russian KAMAZ-Master team took first place in the truck category.

The crew, including 26-year-old team driver Eduard Nikolayev, took first place. The Russians also received silver and bronze medals.

Spanish rally driver Carlos Sainz Cenamor won first place in the SUV qualification race with Folkswagen.

The Silk Road Rally got off to a roaring start September 11 in St. Petersburg. It took the teams eight days to cover about 5,000 km. Rally organizers noted the impressive coordination of the Silk Road route’s complexity and said the race provided an excellent opportunity to train for the Paris–Dakar Rally.
