VLADIMIR VASILYEV: "WE WILL SUPPORT OUR OLYMPIANS!"


On February 7th the XXII Olympic Games took its ceremonial start in Sochi. For the first time in history Russia hosts the winter Olympic Games (in 1980 our country was "hostess" of the summer Olympic Games). And on February 14th, in parallel with the Olympic Games, the FIA World Cup for cross-country will take off in Russia.

Autosports disciplines aren't included in the Olympic types, but the Russian racers fully intend to share spirit of the Olympic movement not only by supporting the national Olympic team, but also by participating in the first round of FIA World Cup – Baja "Russia - Northern forest 2014".

Vladimir Vasilyev: "It is very pleasant to me that this year Russia for the first time hosts two world winter events: The Olympic Games – the biggest sports event, and our winter race – Baja "Russia - Northern forest 2014" which for the first time in the history will take place in the prestigious status of the FIA World Cup for cross-country rallies. We will support our Olympians. Especially, I am fond of hockey and biathlon. In biathlon I wish to ski and shoot by myself! As for race, certainly our team will try to show good result".
