SMP Racing driver Mikhail Aleshin became a member of the jury at the Battle Sled festival in Sokolniki Park on 23 February 2019.Mikhail, a very well familiar with the speed driver, was invited to evaluate the performances of the participants, who were racing down Vsepogorka hill in sleds designed to look like planes, tanks, ships or spaceships.
It was a special mission for them to create an outstanding sled design and its presentation, as the event was dedicated to the celebration of the Defender of the Fatherland Day.
Among the two dozen participants, the SHLINA team became the best, in the jury's opinion, with its Roman Asterix & Obelix sled, while the Funny Drums team took the second place with the MMZ tank - “Everything for the Victory!” and the third place went to Merry guys team with the sled Iron.
Mikhail Aleshin awarded special prizes to the competition winners.
“I really enjoyed this great event, I would like to say a special thanks to the organizers for the invitation,” Mikhail Aleshin commented. “I think sledding on the ice is a very suitable competition for Russia. It was interesting, spectacular and cool. The participants did their best, designed original sleds. Let’s hope that this event will continue to develop, I will be happy to take part in it next year.”
