The competitors will find the longest challenge of the 13th edition — 427 competitive kilometers in three-dimensional landscapes with elevation changes. Drivers will see a variety of tracks — from rocky roads to snow-white chalk hills and steep ravines. The stage will be divided into two special stages, and the crews will have to be very careful not to be caught off guard by course changes.
Fans will be able to see the unique racing vehicles up close while passage through the streets of the city. Like last year the bivouac of the event will be located at the Volgograd Arena placed at the foot of Mamaev Kurgan.
