With support of general partners of the event: PJSC KAMAZ and company group VTB, more than 50 representatives of the beautiful side of humanity took part in the first open winter women cart competition for the prizes of KAMAZ-master Team, that was held on 3 March in “KAMAZ-cart” center.
Special guests were invited to congratulate girls with the race: most attentively girls listened to the speech of Zhanna Khaliullina, as everyone remembers how not long ago (13 May 2018 “First open women cart competition for the prize of “KAMAZ-master” Team) she herself entered the track as a competitor. The Head Editor of “Stolnik” magazine Elena Zarukhovich brought in real spring mood and made girls happy saying, that they could find their photos in the March edition of the magazine. Andrey Kozhevnikov, the Deputy Director General of Automotive equipment maintenance plant “Korib”, also congratulated girls with the start of the competition and remarked that this year the plant reproduced exact copy of the first vehicle, that competed in the first Dakar Rally in 1991. As always Andrey Shumarin, Director of “TatConcert” pleased ladies-compeitors by presenting winners of the competition tickets for the performance of the Italian singer LP, that will take place on 21 February in Kazan, Korston. In the end of the ceremonial start Vladimir Chagin traditionally wished girls good luck and asked them to drive safely.
Competitions were held in two categories: in mass Honda class and a faster one – Rotax-max.
According to the results for the best lap time in Honda category, were chosen 24 competitors, that were faster on the track and they got an opportunity to battle for the prize places on the podium. Not high speed was compensated by hot battle. The fastest were Lilia Badretdinova, Elena Shumkova and Rufina Sattarova, taking first, second and third positions respectively.
Those girls, who knew sport firsthand, took part in the Rotax-Max category. Among them were wives, daughters of carters, who only a week ago competed for the podium themselves, as well as wives of pilots of KAMAZ-master Team: Dmitry Sotnikov, Anton Shibalov, Eduard Nikolaev.
