Prince of Kent does not consider Russian roads bad

The 80-year-ald vintage Bentley automobiles that are taking part in the motor race from Yekaterinburg to St.Petersburg have no problems moving on Russian roads. The Russian roads are not so bad as Russians themselves think, said His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent at a meeting with Yuri Trutnev, the governor of the Perm region, the Urals, when commenting on the first day of the race.

The aim of the British racers is to acquaint the world community with Russia, as at present foreigners know only two Russian cities, Moscow and St.Petersburg, having no idea about the provinces, the Prince said.

Yesterday the participants of the vintage automobile race "To Meet St.Petersburg's 300th Anniversary" arrived in Perm from Yekaterinburg, the Urals. The 3300-km route goes via Perm, Izhevsk /the Volga region/, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod /the Volga region/, and Moscow, RIA Novosti learned from the executive directorate of the race.

About 50 people together with the Prince of Kent are taking part in the race. 12 sports automobiles travel on Russian roads for the first time. The oldest one, Bentley Vauxhall, is 82. The youngest of the cars, a Cadillac, was produced in 1941. All automobiles belong to the English Bentley retro club.

Retro automobiles use AI-92 petrol with special addition to adjust modern fuel to old engines.

On Wednesday the cars will leave for Izhevsk. The race will finish on June 2nd in St.Petersburg during the official celebrations of the city's anniversary.
