Welcome to unique ice & snow baja!

The Northern Forest Baja 2009 will start in Russia’s second capital Saint-Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The event will be based in the up-market ski resort of Igora in the Saint-Petersburg area. The challenging special stages will follow twisty undulating forest paths, surrounded by snow-covered pine woods sparkling in the light of the northern sun.

Since 2003, the Northern Forest Baja has been the opening event of the motorsport season in Russia. Traditionally, all of Russia’s top-rank sportsmen including Boris Gadasin, Leonid Novitsky, Ruslan Misikov, line up for the start of the event. World-famous drivers such as Christian Lavieille, Etienne Smulevici, Dominique Housieaux, and Miroslav Zapletal have also taken part in the Russian Baja in recent years.

You will get a unique opportunity to taste the feeling experienced by rally drivers in Sweden and Finland, speeding your cross country rally car along the snow and ice covered roads on the 2nd round of the 2009 FIA Cup for Cross Country Bajas. The first time in history the event has attained such a great honour!
