The pilot of “KAMAZ-Master” Andrey karginov in an interview Autopartsway commented on the success of his crew in the truck category at the “Africa Eco race-2017”.
“Africa EKO Flight”: Vladimir Vasilyev won the absolute, and the Andrey Karginov’s crew was the best in the category of trucks
“Symbolically it turned out that ten years ago I was in Africa in the role of night mechanics, and now I’m behind the wheel of the KAMAZ food on the combat route – said Andrey. An unforgettable experience.
Great to visit new places, the more legendary, which we heard yet from the traditional “Dakar”.
The race was remembered by sandy rugged Moorish land, where even on a horizontal surface the car was moving with great difficulty. We can easily pass large dunes, and here, it would seem, the elementary horizontal surface, and the machine is not going. Thus, the race was impressive, memorable and interesting.
I can say that the route of “Africa” this year was even harder than the routes of the Dakar for the past years: more difficult sandy stages, dunes, rocks. It’s great to win this race.
As for the opponents, they should never be underestimated. We never come to the race with a dismissive attitude towards opponents, because the competitions are preparing everybody and everyone wants to win.
It was obvious during the race that everyone is fighting. At these competitions, nobody is insured from failures. Everyone understands that someone problems can occur, so vigilance is of the essence”.
