How it was

The first weekend of August was a significant one for the Igora Drive Circuit. Saint Petersburg hosted a festival of speed, thrill and music - GARAGE FEST Igora Drive.

Famous drivers and autograph sessions, a pit lane walk during which everyone could have a close look at sports equipment - all this made motorsport fans pay special attention to what was happening on the race track.
And the 4-hour endurance race, the second round of the Russian Endurance Challenge 2022, that was won by Roman Rusinov and Daniil Kvyat, who completed 115 laps and won in the CN Sport Prototype class and in the overall standings, was of course the highlight of the weekend.

Apart from the racing programme, exciting activities for adults and children - performances by musical acts on two stages, motocross, a drift show, a children's area and much more - were prepared for the GARAGE FEST Igora Drive guests.

    The Russian Endurance Challenge 2022 is a 4-hour endurance car race founded in Russia.

    On the eve of the second round of the REC, the competitors had practice sessions to get acquainted with the track, which go a new layout for the Formula 1 racing. And if the first session was held on dry asphalt, during the second session the drivers had to deal with some heavy rain. A great opportunity to test the cars and the track in different modes!

    An amazing combination of “space” sports prototypes, powerful cars, premium brands and domestic classics (VAZ-2101 and VAZ-21063) gave the competition a special charm. Daniil Kvyat, Vitaly Petrov, Roman Rusinov, Sergey Sirotkin, Mikhail Aleshin and other eminent drivers spent four hours determining who would be the best in each of the classes and in the overall standings.

    Overall winners:
    1st place: G-Drive Racing (No. 26, drivers - Roman Rusinov, Daniil Kvyat) in a G-Drive G01 sports prototype
    2nd place: Yadro Motorsport (No. 4, drivers - Sergey Stolyarov, Rinat Salikhov) in a Mercedes AMG GT3
    3rd place: Capital Racing Team (No. 13, Denis Remenyako, Adam Christodoulou) in a Mercedes AMG GT3

    The race was presented by the G-Drive fuel brand from the Gazprom Neft filling station network.
