Ukrainian Car Victory at the Rally

The Ukrainians won the prestigious "Monte Carlo Retro Rally" in a "ZAZ" car

The victory in the prestigious race was an important event for Ukrainians. First, Ukrainians participated in the Monte Carlo rally for the first time. Second, the 1965 car was chosen because of the 60th anniversary of the factory where it was produced. Third, in 2022, Zaporozhets became the winner of the world race of retro-cars.

The Ukrainian crew chose ZAZ-965 or Zaporozhets for the proposed route. Let’s say that the retro-auto car competition is not a normal race. Only cars that did not change components can take part in the race. Also, the Monte-Carlo Classique Rally is not run at speed. The main task of crews is to cross the route between the control points of the route at a certain time. Behind schedule and ahead of schedule will take points from the participants. 

Such a car last weekend participated in the race. In the original Ukrainian car was changed only old paint. The pilot of ZAZ was Malyk Serhii. Co-driver Vylhotskyy Hennadii helped him win. At the end of the race, it was revealed that they had won their class. Malyk and Vylhotskyywere driving Zaporozhets — a car with engine power up to 900 m3.

Moreover, according to experts, the winning car was one of the best in years of investing-in-ukraine/business-opportunities/manufacturing/" rel="dofollow">manufacture. ZAZ has a good level of the passing of different types of terrain. Therefore, two more Ukrainian Zaporozhets have taken 3rd and 4th place.
