Moscow Raceway Cleared to Host World Superbikes


20.07.2012

Russia’s first international-standard racetrack has received official approval to host the Superbike world championship next month, track officials have said, RIA Novosti reports.

The track opened last weekend with a round of the Renault World Series, but required approval from the FIM motorcycle federation before hosting its first motorbike racing.

“I think that the track is completely ready to host a stage of the Eni FIM Superbike World Championship,” FIM inspector Claude Danis said in comments on the track’s website Wednesday.

The first Russian world Superbike round will take place August 26.

Sergey Sinelnik, an honored traveler of Russia, has covered tens of thousands of miles in sea runs, thousands of kilometers through great deserts of the world, climbing the highest peaks, and that's not all. And yet his main passion is sea. For several years now Sergey, his wife and children have been circumnavigating the globe on the wooden Pilgrim, a replica of traditional boats of Russian coast-dwellers – the Koch. And before that, he reached the shores of Australia on the Rusich boat, which is actually just a large wooden skiff. And the ancient Slavic vessel was a smash there.
There is a place in Finland, where they tell about the history of Russia in 15 languages every day, without a lunchbreak. Sveaborg (or Suomenlinna in Finnish) is a fortress which is now part of Helsinki city limits. It was founded by Sweden in the 18th century, then conquered and reconstructed by Russia, which owned the fortress for more than a hundred years, and passed it to Finland in 1917 following the country’s independence.
