Day 24 Smolensk (Russia) to Minsk (Belarus)
We left Smolensk very early in the morning passing by some beautiful buildings and made our way to the Belarus border.
Four exciting test sections followed on sandy gravel, partly under torrenntial rain. Watch the marshall with his kilt.
We have started to take more air out of the front tires to improve grip on short fast test sections.
The rain on a sunny day created great rainbows.
When we arrived at our hotel in Minsk it was a wonderful surprise to be greeted by the only Karmann Ghia in Belarus owned Ruslan. Ruslan also owns five Bay Window T2 VW buses.
More test sections in Belarus tomorrow.
We added a picture of the Karmann Ghia
surrounded by the vastness of the Mongolian plains.
