Russian Budget Racing

russian budget race 1

Car racing is an expensive sports, everybody knows that. You need to spend thousands dollars after each round to repair and tune up your racing car. Racing teams rely on rich supporters.

But people in smaller Russian cities can’t afford this, does it mean they are deprived of the possibility to race? These guys from Yekaterinburg, Russia make their races in their own way, on a small playground in the middle of the neighborhood, surrounded by living blocks.

Another strange fact about this race that according to the photos most of the viewers are military and/or policemen.

  1. NO WONDER RUSSIANS COULDNT GET TO MOON AND PLAY GOLF ON MOON.

    OLD TECHNOLOGY

    RUSSIA NEEDS NASCAR

    DOES RUSSIA HAVE RACING?

    • It’s a crash derby, they have them in the states and in europe, the point is to use cheap cars so that repairs are less expensive. I don’t like the sport, but to clear things up it’s not just russians that do this.

  2. This is not only a Russian phenomenon. In Canada this is called Demolition Derby. You can buy a running car for $100 and participate or kill your own if you were going to get rid of it anyways.

    The first idea that came to my mind was “Go educate f^%^% yourself Xenia”

    If you know nothing about the space race between the US and USSR, you’d better not use references to the space stuff…

    US has lost to USSR in a number of very important milestones in the space pioneering such as:

    First Space Satellite
    First living being in space
    First Man in Space
    First Man in outer space

    the list is long…

    So please make sure you know what you’re writing about before you actually write it, because you may mislead many people.
    Thank you.

    • Russia first in space, first woman in space, but what does that give you as Russian citizen??? Right NOTHING!!! I`m Russian living in America and I enjoy living here, Americans are nice people trying to do nice things not just for themselves only but to the whole world and every Russian think about him/herself only. Most selfish people on the planet.

      • Americans are nice people trying to do nice things not just for themselves only but to the whole world

        Year right, I wonder why I haven’t seen any Afghan, Kosovo or Iraqi person grateful to the US for doing nice things for them?

        every Russian think about him/herself only

        Are you Nazi or something?
