"Through the efforts of motor sport enthusiasts and the best representatives of exposition activities we managed to revive the tradition that appeared five years ago - to use the skating rink as a racing strip at the end of the skating season. The response in the automobile sports community was fantastic," said the race commentator, sports car tester, Russian champion in circuit racing, participant of the World Championships in GT class and the legendary Camel Trophy Mark Podolsky.

He noted that the race represented a wide variety of motor sports.

"This includes rallying, circuit racing, winter racing, and automobile cross. A particularly nice thing was the presence of the Karting without Borders team - these are disabled guys who are rehabilitated and socialized through motor sports. They are very pleasant and charming people, and we are glad that the environment we create here is helping them get back to an active life. Another important point is that nine regions of our country are represented in the competition - and this coincides with the idea of the RUSSIA EXPO. For representatives of the regions there is an opportunity to establish contacts and get involved in the movement, which will help to raise motor sport in our country higher and higher," Mark Podolsky emphasized.

"The Grand Prix of the Museum Garage of Special Purpose" was won by the team NAMI from Moscow. The Cup of the International RUSSIA EXPO went to Volga from Nizhny Novgorod, and the pilot of the team John Bagdasarov was recognized as the best pilot of the race, he became the owner of the Cup of VDNH. The prize "For Will to Win" was awarded to the Karting without Borders team.
