SHE, HE AND … RALLY

Elena WARSAW

When Daria Mikhailovna entered the editorial office, she did not immediately understand what she was: a fragile creature, very intelligent, with a gentle voice and a slightly shy smile. A third-year student at a law school - yes, it seems. But the rest …

The rest, as it turned out, is a love story. Two people to each other and to the car.

Sergey Linkov, a successful international lawyer, Dasha’s husband (probably you should call her that), is passionate about jeeps, is engaged in motorsport. Last year, the Master Rally competition took second place in its class and seventh in the overall standings …

How does the wife of a rider feel? She has studies, two little daughters, and her husband thinks about the rally! Trains, prepares a car, a week before the next competition literally moves to the garage. Concerns, worries, plans, thoughts - all about racing. Is it easy to endure? Someone is jealous of her husband, a car enthusiast for the car, almost cheating he considers his departure to the garage, and then …

“It’s important for Sergey that I be in competitions, even in between the stages we call up, ” says Daria. - Of course, sometimes when he is especially busy preparing for the performance, a certain feeling of annoyance arose. But when you love a person …

She paused, but the point was easy to continue: you understand his hobbies, you share interests, you want to be around.

And the Linkovs decided that Daria would also become a rally driver. Actually, at first they thought to create a family crew, where she will be the navigator. But then, after a more mature reflection, they came to the conclusion that it would be more reasonable to create another, female crew, in which she would take the pilot's place.

Daria drives a car well - every day in Moscow driving. She also underwent contra-emergency training: she knows firsthand what controlled drift, “high-speed taxiing” is. But sports driving, as it turned out, is still completely different. Here we need a special concentration, composure. Character.

At the very first rally competitions, a female crew with a pilot Daria Linkova was noticed, showed a good performance …

It is not at all necessary that the Linkov family will become champions. Yes, it doesn’t matter. The main thing is that they are together, and the car (not just a car - a race!) Unites them even more. “It seems to me, and the daughters will be interested, ” said the rally-mother. “But it’s good when children and parents have common hobbies.”

Why did I tell you this story? I would like the car to become a unifying principle in your families. I do not urge everyone to enroll in racers. But to be interested in the machine, not to assume that technology is a purely masculine affair, would be correct. Then such a widespread jealousy for the car among driver’s wives will go away - mutual understanding will come.
