12 April 2017 → Motor season opens in Minsk on April 30

Thousands of motorcyclists will come to Minsk for the opening of the season of the Harley Owners Group on April 30. As it is reported by the "Minsk-Novosti" agency correspondent, this information was delivered to journalists by the organizers of the season on April 12.

"We hope that the Festival will attract as many participants as it was at the closing of the season last year (about 4,000 motorcyclists." - Author's note), "said Yana Shcherbich, Assistant to the Head of LLC "MotoIvent". Minsk will gather representatives of clubs from Belarus, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic. I would like to stress that the event caters not only for the owners of Harley-Davidson. The coming grand Festival will be of great interest not only to lovers of motorcycling and car enthusiasts but also city-dwellers-pedestrians.

The Festival will open with the traditional motor parade: a column of participants will solemnly pass from the Glory Mound to the playing-field near the Football House. Then motorcyclists will have to compete in the relay for the title of the best sports club. The next stage of the Festival will be the performance of Russian motor freestylers, or, as the organizers intrigue, a show of flying motorcycles. In the framework of the event, there will also be demonstration performances at Harley-Davidson and demonstration of power sports. And all this will be done to the accompaniment of Russian musicians: Yankey, Inomarki, The White Queen, Aillion, J: Morse, Montana. Spectators of all ages are expected to enjoy a lot of contests, to be given a lot of pleasant surprises.

By the way, this year the opening season will last for two days. On the eve of the official start (April 29), the guests of the motor season will be offered various excursions.

"One of them will be an excursion within the city - to the"Alivaria" beer museum. Two excursions will be organized within the Minsk region: to the Ecological Tourism Center "Stankovo" and to the "Stalin Line", said Y. Shcherbich. "I would like to note that for the motor-tour to "Stankovo" 30 people have already signed up, though there are still two weeks before the start of the event".

It would be wrong to think that this grand and bright festivity in honor of the opening of the new season has been conceived for no particular reason.

"In 2018, Harley-Davidson is going to celebrate a great anniversary - 115 years of the brand", explains Y. Shcherbich. "And we want to compete for holding this year the all-European H.O.G. Rally on the territory of Belarus.

What does success depend on?

It depends on the decision of the leaders of European clubs. We hope that they will be impressed. At least, the closing of the last season was highly appreciated. It is worth mentioning that last year the festival was visited not only by representatives of the motor community and the State traffic inspectorate, but also by the Head of State himself!" she continued.

For reference:

The opening of the Harley Owners Group motor season for the CIS countries will be held on April 30 from 12:00 to 21:00 (the playground behind the Football House). The event is organized by LLC "MotoIvent" with the support of the Minsk City Executive Committee.
