Greetings to Russia’s KamAZ-Master crew, winner in Dakar 2019 rally truck category

January 17, 2019

Vladimir Putin congratulated Eduard Nikolayev, Yevgeny Yakovlev and Vladimir Rybakov, members of the KamAZ-Master crew, on their victory in the Dakar 2019 rally’s truck category.

The message reads, in part:

“Our lorry crews have traditionally been acknowledged leaders of this reputable and prestigious rally. Strong rivals do not rest, but nevertheless you are keeping the bar high and every year prove that you are superior in both driving and the strength of will and character.

The well-deserved champion title is the result of tireless and combined efforts of the entire KamAZ-Master crew, including navigators, drivers and mechanics, as well as the support of numerous fans. And of course, this success is an important and symbolic gift, as the KamAZ plant is marking its 50th anniversary this year.”
