In Moscow, on the track "Myachkovo - the Moscow Ring", was held September 16-17, the sixth stage of the National Racing Series LADA. In the framework of which, held competitions in class LADA Revolution (sportprototipy). C in the morning the weather over the Moscow region established motor racing track is not racing - rainy and windy. It was the first "wet" stage of the season.

At the start of the first (of two planned for the weekend)-goal arrival, the pilots went on rubber type "Slick" (Slick - this tire for dry asphalt, it has no tread pattern).

However, after placing pilots on the grid, there was a downpour. Despite the fact that cars are "revolutionary" open class, race director decided to start, but the back of the field was moving on the highway after seyfeti-karom (safety car), to enable pilots to "pereobut" race cars in the rain tires.

Arrivals passed incredibly slowly. But on the fifth lap "fast" start yet been given. The race was headed by an experienced pilot Gregory Komarov, the owner of the same pole position, the championship leader Vitaly Petrov was second. But in the seventh round Petrov bypasses veteran, and begins to circle after circle to increase the advantage.

The rain fell more and more, miniature cars with barely stayed on the track for the time of arrival, almost All virtually every pilot was on the verge of departure, or even flew off the road. At the 12-lap, the rain has caused quite a comical situation: the youngest rider in the class Timur Sadretdinov, trailing the leader in terms of arrival (according to lagging should always skip ahead a driver who has been fighting for a higher position) made a real fight to Vitaly Petrov . As it turned out, Timur simply did not see who goes after him ....

"The race was incredibly hard, because everyone went to the dry setting, under rain were fitted wheels only. The car was hardly driven. The advantage was the one who was able to quickly" make peace "with the car. Special thanks to want to tell other pilots for quite correctly fight on the track. "

In the second race of the student's record sixth stage, riders have settled on the grid according to the rules - in the reverse order employed in the first round sites (the winner - in eighth place, second prize - at the seventh, etc.).

Best Start failed Gregory Komarov - already on the first lap he was able to play three positions, the same race last season, led the champion Cyril Ladygin and his teammate Yegor Efrosinina.

During the race a special courage grabbed young Timur Sadretdinov: completely ignoring the authority, he persistently and even brazenly bypassed a "luminary" after another. Behind already Kursk fox "Grigory Komarov, after a couple of laps, Timur rigidly held and Vitaly Petrov. In these moments on the track for spectators, there was only him.

But it took a rain - one of the corners a young driver can not cope with the car on the wet surface and flew off the track - this failure of the Moscow pilot took the entire group of rivals.

and 17-lap something happened that took place in almost all the previous races this season - the leaders easily and confidently catch in the lead up to this moment Cyril Ladygina at the slightest mistake, goes Vitaly Petrov.
