On August 13, a subsequent stage of the Russian Endurance Challenge was held on one of the most modern and spectacular tracks in Russia, KazanRing Canyon. The GTE Racing Team, which title sponsor is Globaltechexport Ltd., fielded a Mazda racing car prepared according to the requirements of the Mazda Cup class and a competitive crew consisting of Philipp Tuponosov, Andrey Yemelin, Igor Udalov, and Evgeny Isaev.
The race lasted four hours and abounded with striking overtaking and close contact struggle in all sectors of KazanRing Canyon, which, according to the drivers, is one of the most picturesque and spectacular circuits in Russia, due to its stunning corners and a noticeable elevation difference.
More than 30 drivers from Russia, Baltics, Austria, and Germany took part in the Kazan stage of the Russian Endurance Challenge, divided into classes according to the capabilities of their racing cars. Real racing prototypes, such as Ligier JS 51 and FIA GT3 cars from Mercedes and Lamborghini, as well as Mitjet and Mazda Cup classes took part in the marathon.
As a result of an exhausting battle and well-coordinated teamwork, the GTE Racing Team saw the checkered flag in first place in their class after 123 laps. It was a confident win for our racers, who managed to avoid technical issues and showed patience and endurance typical of true winners. The GTE Racing Team took 6th place in the overall classification, ahead of many representatives of teams in faster classes.
Globaltechexport Ltd. warmly congratulates the winners and wishes our GTE Racing Team further victories, which should not be long in coming!
