Classical Mercedes cars participated in a rally on Moscow roads for the third time on May 19th. This year the regulations allowed Mercedes cars built before 1971. The route stretched from Vorob’evy Gory to the “Beach Club” with two check points at fashionable shops. While the cars were being inspected at the check points, the teams were served a light cocktail (supposedly with no spirits). The Russia Automobile Federation was the head of the Rally Referee. Each car had a driver and a navigator. A famous TV presenter, whisky-loving Dmitry Dibrov, was driving a Mercedes 190SL 1957, while Oksana Robsky, famous writer (and famous Rublevka resident), was in the same type of car but one manufactured in 1960. Although the stars didn’t make it to the finish line; (they were disqualified for rule breaking), they joined the winners at the final event. Other celebrities (actor Alexandre Loye, American photographer Robert Whitman) were seen at the celebratory “Chicago Party,” “Some Like It Hot” show and just good music at the “Beach Club”. All participants got special gifts.
