Haven't heard about the event. The Moscow raceway is in about 70 km from my location. But as you can see on the pics they didn't use the race track.

Daimler engine, ZF gearbox.... All that is very good but far from to be called inexpensive stuff. Unfortunately the politics think on how to sell more of expensive things minimize pollutions. Not just how to get the most of jobs done.
