Silk Way Rally 2018: a 100% Russian challenge for MKR and Renault Trucks

After a strong performance last April during the Morocco Desert Challenge, MKR and Renault Trucks have high expectations for the Silk Way Rally 2018. Two Renault Trucks vehicles will compete: a Renault Trucks K520 with Riwald team and a Renault Sherpa with Mammoet Rallysport team.

For its eight edition, the Silk Way Rally has a double challenge for the participants: a first race will be held in Russia in July, followed by a second one in China in September. For now, it is a 100% Russian challenge that awaits MKR’s teams from July 20th to 27th.

The robustness of Renault Trucks vehicles will be tested at the service of a beautiful show that will lead them to unique sites like the Takyr desert and Elista, the chess city. In total, they will travel 2500 kilometres, trough the most extreme Russian lands. The many sandy and technical tracks as well as all the junctions set by the organizers will require a high vigilance for the navigation of the vehicles.  The competition will be tight.
