Moscow Raceway Cleared to Host World Superbikes


20.07.2012

Russia’s first international-standard racetrack has received official approval to host the Superbike world championship next month, track officials have said, RIA Novosti reports.

The track opened last weekend with a round of the Renault World Series, but required approval from the FIM motorcycle federation before hosting its first motorbike racing.

“I think that the track is completely ready to host a stage of the Eni FIM Superbike World Championship,” FIM inspector Claude Danis said in comments on the track’s website Wednesday.

The first Russian world Superbike round will take place August 26.

This year marks the 130th anniversary of the birth of Vladimir Zworykin, a famous Russian inventor and the pioneer of television technology. His name was unknown for a long time in Russia. Meanwhile, in the United States, where the inventor lived most of his life, at some point he was under supervision, as the FBI suspected him to be a Russian spy.
The Russian village of Aleksandrovka, an amazing corner of Russian history, has been preserved in one of the districts of Potsdam. The Alexander Nevsky Memorial Church, the oldest surviving Orthodox church in Germany, is located on a mountain nearby. The history behind this village is, first of all, the story of friendship between two royal persons - Frederick William III of Prussia and Alexander I of Russia. Andrei Chernodarov, a historian and cultural expert, told the Russkiy Mir on how this unusual monument came to existence and how it has been preserved.
