The third stage of the Russian Drift Series Grand Prix in 2022 will be held in Moscow on July 2-3, during which a new format of races for young drivers will make its debut. Several dozen Russian, Belarusian and Chinese pilots will perform at ADM Raceway.
Participants of the Russian Drift Series Grand Prix (RDS GP) are back in action after a month-long break. The third stage of the 2022 season will take place in Moscow at the ADM Raceway in Myachkovo. After a large-scale reconstruction, the autodrome hosts the weekends of the national drift championship.
New to RDS GP will be the Wild Card format, which will debut in Myachkovo. At the RDS GP stage in Moscow, for the first time, two representatives of the junior series will race.
During the second round of RDS Europe, the fans chose a few riders who had the chance to duel in the RDS GP. Denis Sorokopud and Danila Vorobyov took part in the very first RDS Wild Card.
The battle of the young riders will take place in the final of the weekend of July 3, between duels for third place and for victory in the third stage of the RDS GP. At stake is the RDS Wild Card – a big cash prize.
Who will be the main character of the weekend at ADM Raceway
“Forward Auto” leader Georgy Chivchyan, after winning the second stage in Nizhny Novgorod, will start the weekend in Moscow in the current winner’s status. His main rivals will be SITNEC FRESH AUTO DRIFT pilots Damir Idiyatulin and Evgeny Losev, FailCrew leader Darkseid Arkady Tsaregradtsev and his own teammates Roman Tivodar and Leonid Schneider.
BY Motorsport’s Dmitry Ermokhin will also be in contention for a top 3 finish at the end of the weekend. After reaching the final on the Nizhny Novgorod Ring, the driver is determined to renew his success in Moscow, especially since he has already been on the podium at Myachkovo and knows this track well.
