Wolgas, Schigulis and Moskwitschs are rather rare participants in oldtimer races. This has changed with the introduction of the Classic Grand Prix in 2013 (in St. Petersburg). At the time, the event was celebrated as the 100th anniversary of the circuit races in Russia, and since then it has enjoyed increasing popularity.
In just four teams in 2013, four years later, 200 participants from eight countries competed at the Metropolitan Racecourse in the Russian capital. The MCGP Classic is still the only official circuit race in Russia of its kind.
