Day 20

Good thing we enjoyed the dinner last night because breakfast consisted of all the leftovers. Beef stroganoff, fried salmon, tagliatelle and grilled peppers. Even the cream cake dessert made an unpopular reappearance.

One of the first sections today was a lap around a race track. As I had only ever driven around a track in a go kart, we decided that I would give this timed section a go. I got into the drivers seat and straight away Mario started giving me tips. The main one was “apex, apex, APEX!” I finally know what that word means.

The rest of the drive to Ufa was very relaxed. Unusually, we had less than 400km to cover and could arrive at the hotel in our own time. It was a nice way to ease into the upcoming rest day.
