Lukyanuk and Arnautov: in a new Subaru at the Rally Masters Show!

Two Alexeys legendary crew reunion will take place at the Rally Masters Show this Saturday.

Alexey Lukyanuk’s crew that won in tandem with Alexey Arnautov Russian and Estonian Championships last season, interrupted their rally joint performances in 2015.

In the new season Lukyanuk has moved to a more powerful class and takes part in the FIA European Rally Championship in Ford Fiesta R5 together with the business co-driver Ukrainian Evgeny Chervonenko. The sport has always remained outside of politics, and Russian-Ukrainian crew acting under Belarusian license, has risen to the third place in the European Championship overall standings. During the three starts in the FIA ERC Alexey has not only set the fastest time and speed, but also won the prestigious award for the most desperate and spectacular performance – FIA ERC Colin McRae Flat Out Trophy. By the way, this is the third such award for Lukyanuk. And Alexey Arnautov again takes a shot in the Russian Rally Championship with the legendary Sergey Uspensky.

This weekend the reigning Russian champions will again sit in the same car, the new Subaru WRX STI 2015. The car prepared by URT for Subaru team has already proven itself at the Russian Championship tracks, featuring high speed, having scored up a victory in overall standings at Rally Peno 2015 – the 2nd round of the Russian Championship.

Alexey Lukyanuk: “We have participated in the Rally Masters Show twice, our first experience was in Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 10, the second time we started in the 9th Lancer R4. Every time we have represented different teams. The asphalt experience grows and the car settings understanding forms. For the first time our performance was completely incomprehensible for us: the car was uncontrolled, it had the gravel specification except shock absorbers. But now we have the experience of setting the car and understanding what is asphalt. We can not set up any car perfectly of course, but nevertheless we have the skill.

From this year we are waiting for fine weather, good car and interesting fight. This is a great spring festival, I have a very good impression from it. We are looking forward to it!”
