The finish line awarded the 1st place to Dmitry Sotnikov, who shared the podium with team-mates Anton Shibalov (2nd place) and Ayrat Mardeev (3d place).
Dmitry Sotnikov drove a new modification of KAMAZ-master truck. A part of its victory was guaranteed by an excellent performance of Total lubricants. Total products were specially selected by Total Vostok technical team in alliance with KAMAZ-master lub advisors. Giant dunes and great sand massifs, extreme temperatures, sudden changes of direction and hidden traps made the journey to Xi’an an extreme test for truck engines and gearboxes. Total lubricants provided advanced engine protection, reduced friction wear and helped cooling. KAMAZ-master team members had an incredible human and physical experience, while technical performance of the trucks was safely guarded by Total lubricants. KAMAZ-master recommends Total.
