Three slightly modified VW Amarok and nine people on board were sent to the 16,000 km journey from Moscow to Petropavlovsk. The 60-day odyssey led across the least explored regions of Russia. For the first time became a part of the Koryak Plateau and the Sredinny-ridge sail in Kamchatka – and so set a new record for the Guinness World Records.
