NHS LADA: "Revolution in the Northern Capital

August 29 2005

August 26-27 in St. Petersburg, on the track "Neva Ring" took the fifth stage of the national racing series LADA.V within a single race weekend races were several classes of cars: LADA Revolution and the Goblet of LADA, and Touring, Touring Light and Superprodakshn .

Usually day of racing begins with a visit to the doctor - stern man in a white robe Merit racers pressure and decides to allow or not allow the participant to compete. So this time I happened to watch a funny picture - to the table doctor lined up an entire turn, which together awaiting their fate, and an aspiring pilot and renowned champions. But, behold, the tent came another racer - to a pain familiar face. Bah, it's the same People's Artist of Russia, Dmitry Pevtsov - it traditionally takes part in races in the class of Touring Light on the car WV Polo (interview with actor-racer read on Yoki.Ru).

Upon completion of the medical examination, the pilots rushed to their fighting vehicles - is the time of official workouts on classes. Training took place almost without incident, until the hour has come out on the road most powerful type of car - Touring.

"Spurred" mnogosotsilnye their cars, drivers have gone on "intelligence" road. Then began to occur much-loved episodes of the audience - crashes, collision damage. So, in a serious mess got riders MTS AS RASING Oleg Petryshyn - his BMW had to pull out of the ditch with the help of heavy-duty machine. All fears about the health of the victim were scattered after a while, when he famously dissected on outlandish kind bike. It can be seen far away from Oleg decided to move to far less capricious vehicle ....

But, all jokes aside - it's time the official races, the last minute over the machines 'conjure' mechanics, pilots corrected ammunition .... Go!

Engines roared very youngest of the presented classes - Touring Light.
It presents the most democratic cars - Volkswagen Polo GTI, Citroen Saxo, Citroen C2, LADA 112 SportCoupe, Ford Fiesta.

Before the beginning of the fifth stage of the situation overall in this class was incredibly confusing. Only five points separated the leader of the season Alexander Sotnikov (Dynamo Motorsport) from coming in second place Sergei Khabarova (Megafon Motorsport) and, in turn, six points behind championship leader behind Viktor Shapovalov. And this despite the fact that the victory in the race 40 points are credited immediately!

I note that a victory for "Neva Ring" won all the same leader, Alexander Sotnikov, thereby After consolidating leadership in the overall standings.

Machine is the same team "Rus-Lan", derived from on board the name of D. singers, to which was drawn a lot of women's views, fell all over the arrival of some pretty sticky situations: from the outset it was evident that few of the famous actor brings technology, then, on the last lap after a collision Dmitry buried "nose" in the bump. But, despite all the troubles, the Singers could finish the race on the 9-spot.

As always, the highest interest of the audience called the race in a class of LADA Revolution, where the chase sportprototipy.

Prior to this stage in the general standings championship also observed a very interesting pattern - several pilots were at a small distance from each other - 10 points (a victory in one race).

After four stages of "The Famous Five" looked like this:
1. Vitaly Petrov (''Maksmotor-Ulyanovsk'') - 71 points;
2. Kirill Ladygin (''Forza Sport'') - 47 points;
3. Vitali Dudin (''LADA loan'') - 40 points;
4.Grigory Komarov (personal credit) - 39 points;
5. Alexander Tyuryumin (''AMC''FSO of Russia) - 27 points.
But, just before the start of the weekend, it became known that the young racer Ulyanovsk, unconditional championship leader Vitaly Petrov will not be able to take part in the race. In the absence of the favorite, with the other participants a chance to significantly improve their position in the overall championship.

Lack of experienced leaders used Kursk pilot Gregory Komarov. To his credit numerous victories in karting, and he repeatedly won the "Touring" championships.

According to the rules, races sportprototipov LADA Revolution, held in two phases: the first riders start according to the places occupied in the qualification and the second in the reverse order results of the first arrival (racer, took first place, will start last).

And now, Gregory Komarov, nicknamed "Kursk fox" without problems and came in first and second case to the finish line first.

Thus, to his credit in the overall championship was once 59 points, which allowed him to go for a solid second place.

Fans and experts are surprised by the youngest pilot series Timur Sadretdinov from Moscow - it is a wise and precise piloting plunged into a pleasant shock.
