On route to Moscow, tour highlights in the few short breaks between driving sessions included a stop at Russia’s largest power plant and driving a section of the Chuysky Tract, one of the world’s oldest roads. Tour participants also took a break at Chany Lake, a large body of freshwater that locals claim is home to a man-eating sea monster. Further west, the Mazda3 teams visited the Kungur Ice Caves, with their sprawling caverns and bizarre ice formations.

Crossing the Ural Mountains from Asia into Europe, crews stopped at two of Russia’s most famous kremlins (Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod), before arriving on Saturday evening in the Russian capital.

In Moscow, the Mazda Route3 convoy joined in the Festival of Speed (an event which aims to become Russia’s answer to the Goodwood Festival), and stole the show at this year’s motorsport event – if not on the track then certainly in the hearts of the 10,000-strong crowd at the Luzhniki sports complex.

The last group of tour participants hit the road for the seventh leg of the epic journey, which will take them through the final 1,550 miles to the Frankfurt Motor Show – via three European capitals (Minsk, Warsaw and Berlin) – where four of the eight cars will be put on display.
