Vyacheslav Subbotin, Sports Director of GAZ Raid Sport:


- Rally raids are very interesting as they are not really predictable. A 4-day rally is a very big challenge as you need to take care of the vehicle and think accurately about your potential to reach the final. Serial YMZ-534 and Cummins 2.8 engines, as always, proved to be really good in the rally in Volgograd. This season Valvoline, a motor oil manufacturer, is our partner, this also had a positive impact on the engines and their performance in the extremely challenging road conditions of the rally, and the current rankings prove it.
