On the eve of the finish in Moscow, the rally will move from sandy to dirt tracks, so that pilots can enjoy fast driving. Co-pilots should not fall asleep as navigation will be very demanding. And for those who doubt it, it will be enough to see the thickness of the road book of the last selective section which finish will be judged at less than 270 kilometres from Moscow, to understand that crews will not reach the final finish in the Russian capital free-wheel
