On March 2019 on the eastern shore of the Baikal lake the first festival of speed “Baikal Mile” took its’ place. And because of warm response given by spectators and media both, it has been made an annual event. This festival became a complete breakthrough in a history of international motorsport and racing culture because of extreme and severe nature conditions of Siberia. It is an ordeal and a challenge not only for pilots but also for technical equipment presented at the event.
The main idea of our event is to set speed records on a different types of vehicles on the ice surface of the deepest lake on Earth.
On three specially equipped ice tracks with a length of 1/8 mile and one mile each team gets the opportunity to fix the highest mark on the speedometers of their racing vehicles.
Judges of the commission from Russia and USA, world-class athletes and Bonneville Speedweek champions, as well as stunt riding, drifting, drag racing, flat track, freestyle moto extreme – all these activities happen at the same venue! And all this is “Baikal Mile”!
Stars on the Baikal Festival 2018. Day one
Since 2004 Denis Matsuev has organized “Stars on Baikal” in Irkutsk, Siberia (in 2009 he was awarded the title of Honorary Citizen of Irkutsk)
13-15 June 2019, The village of Yelantsy, the Irkutsk Region.
The Yordyn Games, an ethnocultural festival of the peoples of Eurasia, brings together men, who compete in strength and agility, and women, who take part in a beauty pageant.
Under the blazing-white summer sky, wrestlers get fired up to try their strength against one another, and horsemen participate in races. Archers shoot at targets with traditional bows.
Weight lifters have to undergo a serious ordeal: Their task is to lift and move a stone which weighs from 110 to 125 kilograms.
It is held every other year. The festival location was chosen a very long time ago – the sacred mountains Yokhe Yord and Baga Yord, eight kilometers away from the settlement of Yelantsy in Irkutsk Region.
Apart from competitions, the central event of the festival is Yokhor, a ritual ring dance of buryat peoples around the sacred mountain. It takes 700 people to form the circle. There are always enough volunteers to dance all night long, holding hands with a crowd of strangers: The 2015 festival gathered 5000 guests who made three giant rings to encircle the mountains.
