A month ago, the editors of the magazine “Behind the Wheel” sent about fifty personal invitations to the best racers of Russia, performing both in national championships and in various foreign series.

По устоявшейся традиции, все участники финала предыдущей Гонки звезд получают персональные приглашения на старт гонки следующей, вне зависимости от титулов и званий. According to an established tradition, all participants in the finals of the previous Race of stars receive personal invitations to start the race of the next, regardless of titles and ranks. According to an established tradition, all participants in the finals of the previous Race of stars receive personal invitations to start the race of the next, regardless of titles and ranks.

The final composition of the participants we learn only on the eve of the launch, when the pilots will submit official applications and pass administrative control. Several pilots, however, today have confirmed their willingness to start.

Names and Titles

After a year-long break, the Muscovite Alexei Vasiliev, the winner of the 2008 Star Race, and then her three-time winner, is preparing the car for launch. The famous Orel racer Vladimir Cherevan did not miss a single Star Race in the 21st century (he has two podiums) and starts at the upcoming one. The current winner of the Star Race and the owner of the Bronze Tire Nikolai Karamyshev from Kursk is also ready for battle.

Николай Карамышев - двукратный победитель и единственный, кто выиграл Гонку звезд и в зимнем, и в летнем формате. У него есть шанс повторить достижение Кирилла Ладыгина, выигравшего три Гонки звезд подряд. Nikolai Karamyshev is a two-time winner and the only one who won the Star Race in both winter and summer format. He has a chance to repeat the achievement of Cyril Ladygin, who won three Races of stars in a row.

The young Kuznetsov’s asset is a victory in the RSKG series in the junior standings, and now he is one of the leaders of the “adult” standings National. And he has a chance to break the record of Timur Sadredinov, who in 2007 became the winner of the Star Race at the age of 17 years.

We also expect to see the winners of the Race of the Stars of Previous Years, Kirill Ladygin and Vladimir Sheshenin, who are now partners in the Lada Sport team and compete in the national championship in circuit racing.

What will they go to?

If in general terms, then on sedans and hatchbacks with a single-axis drive and 1600 cc engines, prepared according to national technical requirements. In particular, RSKG National Championship championship class cars do not require any alterations, except for tuning to the configuration of a particular track.

For the technology of other offsets - rally, ring or cross, having superiority in engine power, the private regulation of the Race of Stars provides for the installation of a limiter (restrictor) on the intake system. Also, to equalize technical capabilities, the installation of ballast is prescribed - for example, machines where a sequential gearbox is used will be a little heavier than all others.
