II Moscow - St.-Petersberg run.

The second race between Russian capitals was dropped on 1900 August, 7 and obviously wasn’t the most popular race from drivers’ point of view. Cars were presented by only two competitors – Mazy on Starley-Psycho 3.5hp voiturette and J.G.Genrik (France) on Mors 4hp car. Genrik was a new Clement director in St.-Petersberg after Mazy had joined Starley. But even those two entrants were more than one starter driving a tricycle – Deschamps on his DeDion-Bouton 2.25hp, who have already won Luga-St.-Petersberg race. However, this time he won again. Partly due to both cars retirement, partly to his speed – at average 26,282 km/h he spent 26 hours and 17 minutes on 650 versts distance. That was a record for a three-wheeler – Mazy’s previous year time was beaten by 15 minutes.

Race results:

1. Deschamps 26:23.00
Ret. Mazy
Ret. Genrik

First Russian Hillclimb

Arranged as an equivalent of French hillclimb competitions, the race happened on July, 2 was a first ever hillclimb in Russia. It provided some useful information for further automotive industry development. It concerned gearboxes – the cars fitted with them behaved much better going up the hill than ones with only one gear. Almost all period drivers tried their best in a competition held on a hill near Krasnoe Selo going up from Strelna side, but Pavel Belyaev on 31/2hp Vivinus car appeared to be the best there (4:21.8 minutes).
What is interesting for me here is that there was at least one time better than Belyaev’s – Prussakov on DeDion ran for 3:30.2. Maybe it was a DeDion tricycle, not a car, thus belonged to another category – I don’t know for sure.

II Race for Samokat magazine prize.

The second annual race for Samokat magazine prize took place on July, 23. As many of year 1900 events, the entries list was almost empty… Partly because of this, previous year Mazy’s winning time (2:43:38) remained unbeaten, ‘thanks’ to a violent contrary wind.
The first finished was Deschamps, who completed the distance in 2:53:30. Vadim Mihailov came second. As he told later, he could finish first, but hit a calf, that didn’t want to get out of the way, and bended his tricycle’s fork. Fomin on a four-wheeler spent 4:33:50 for 100 versts, and Barbais on Mors 6hp automobile finished in 3:57:20. To be mentioned, Barbais didn’t avoid accident with animal too by hitting a cow.

Narva-St.-Petersberg.

The next race, between Narva and St.-Petersberg, happened a week later - on July, 30. Should I say it didn’t see many entrants and visitors?
Among 3 tricycles entered by Mihailov, Deschamps and Stepanov, only one car was listed – Genrik’s two-seater 5hp Mors. As always, heavy four-wheeler looked pale compared to frisky tricycles, which was confirmed by results: the winner, Mihailov, spent just 4:11 for 140 versts, while Genrik needed almost 12 hours to complete the same route.
The interesting occurance happened during the race. When Mihailov and Deschamps, going almost wheel-to-wheel, came to a railroad bridge near Yambourg, the turnpike began to close down, due to a train arrival. While Mihailov succeeded in crossing the railroad, Deschamps was a bit late, so he had to stop and wait until the train went through. Mihailov won a lot of time… Deschamps finally came second before Stepanov, though suffered from tyres. In fact, this problem followed Genrik’s Mors, too.

Race for the prizes of Sport magazine.

The last of 1900 races in Russia, this one was dropped by Andrei Nagel, that time Sport magazine director. On December, 30 two 4-wheelers Gladiator 3.5hp (Genrik at the wheel) and Clement (Barbais and Mihailov) and Samuel Suurmets on 4hp tricycle were all ready to go. Even though it was 27 below zero.
That day horse-race was declined because of the temperature no horse could run in such conditions, while all the motors performed well even now and reached horses speed. Actually, some acts were taken the distance was reduced from 80 to 40 versts and was the same as for the first race in 1898: Aleksandrovskaya station Strelna Aleksandrovskaya station.
The best of the best in that race Suurmets showed 1:46:24 with an average speed of 55,2 km/h, which was a worldwide record in such conditions. Genrik (whose mechanic, in fact, was a little Russian boy) needed 2:34 at av. Speed of 16,6 km/h. Barbais-Mihailov came even later, as they stopped to refuel (first pit-stop, eh? ).
What is interesting, all of 3 starters finished in that awful weather, even though both cars were water-cooled.

III Cup for Society of Cycling.

The last of three races for Society of Cycling was an opening event in 1901. Such small number of entrants – four in general, among which was only one car – was caused by an absolutely awful weather – in the mid-March (March, 17 to be precise) all the snow in Russia began to melt, and the road was hardly driveable. The only mentioned car was a Clement entered by Barbais. Among the others – one two-seater quadricycle (driven by Genrik) and two tricycles (Alekseev and Suurmets). The distance through the Volhonskoe ave (about 65 versts) was done best by Suurmets, while Genrik and Barbais finished just in the evening and Alekseev retired.

Results:

1. Samuel Suurmets – 3:58’30 (av.speed 17.444kmh)
2. J.G.Genrik
3. Barbais (Clement)
DNF Alekseev (tricycle)

St.-Petersberg – Gatchina – St.-Petersberg.

This race, organized by Samokat magazine, was held up on April, 24 (some say, 29). This time only one tricycle and some cars arrived to compete each other. The first on the 68-verst distance was J.G.Genrik on Mors 6hp, second – Mazy, who drove Russian produced Starley-Clement equipped with a DeDion-Bouton 3.5hp engine and 2-speed transmission, Postnikov on tricycle was third, and Fomin driving his car came fourth. The rest participants didn’t finish.

Results:

1. J.G.Genrik (Mors 6hp) – 2:37’00 (27.723kmh)
2. Louis Mazy (Starley-Clement) - 2:42
3. Boris Postnikov – 2:51
4. Fomin – 2:52’30
Rest – DNF

First Volhonka verst race.

May, 25 saw a brand-new type of racing in Russia, that was called verst racing. Best drivers arrived to Volhonskoe ave. to try their best in runs for highest speed at 1 verst (1,067km) distance. Because of the violent wind it was agreed to complete a verst in both sides – first, following the wind with a dead start and then, with a 5 minutes rest - driving against the wind, this time with a flying start. Three classes were present – bicycles, motorcycles and cars. Drivers could run two times, but each time on different machines. The public didn’t show any interest in such competitions. Moreover, some problems with timing occurred, but the experiment was very successful, and verst racing became a traditional form of racing for Russian Empire.
First ever Volhonka verst race in motorcycles class was won by Boris Postnikov. The cars category prize was taken by Louis Mazy. Both made two attempts. To be said, results that were showed, differed strongly for both directions (with wind and against it).

Winners (time – min:sec’tenths):

Motorcycles – Boris Postnikov:
1st attempt: Psycho-Starley 1.32hp motorcycle (32kg). Dead start – 3:26’4 (18.6kmh). Flying start – 1:42’0 (37.6 kmh).
2nd attempt: Clement-DeDion 1.75hp tricycle. Dead start – 2:42’8 (23.6kmh). Flying start – 1:17’8 (49.4kmh).
Cars – Louis Mazy:
1st attempt: 499cc Starley-Clement 3.5hp two-seater (seemingly the one from St.-Petersberg – Gatchina – St.-Petersberg race). Dead start – 2:44’2 (23.4kmh). Flying start – 1:24’6 (45.3kmh).
2nd attempt: Bardone 8hp three-seater. Dead start – 2:44’0 (23.4kmh). Flying start – 1:37’8 (39.2kmh).

Unfortunately, these results can’t be considered serious, as the World record already equaled 105,88kmh. Moreover, World record for a bicycle was.. higher than Mazy’s result – 69,231kmh.

II Luga – St.-Petersberg.

Kind of various info concerning this race both with terms and participants. Some sources say it was held up in June, 1901, another assure that is was a closing one that year (the last is a version of that times racer – Vadim Mihailov – published in a book). It is surely known that the winner was a director of just opened automotive warehouse, Rene Millot from France. But again, Mihailov says he drove a 6.5hp Darracq, while another sources insist on 6.5hp Perfecta (Italian make). Winning time varies, too (4:40, according to Mihailov and 6:01:06’3 following another source). Still, Mihailov’s time seems more possible for me again, as he states the second arrival’s result – 5:07 for Constantin Kapustin. Emile Lidtke, who also took part in a race, was the owner of Union factory in St.-Petersberg and drove his own-built Union car 3hp equipped with a Vivinus 3hp engine.

Results:

1. Rene Millot (F) Darracq (or Perfecta?) 6.5hp – 4:04 (or 6:01:06’3?)
2. Constantin Kapustin (RUS) Gladiator – 5:07 (?)
? Emile Lidtke (RUS) Union 3hp
? Petr Puzanov (RUS) Bollee-Puzanov 3.5hp tricar

Pictures:
1. Union 3hp. Source – cars-collection.net.ru

1901 Bollee-Puzanov 3.5hp tricar.

Unlike most period three-wheelers with two wheels in the back and one in the front, Bollee-Puzanov had two wheels in the front and one in the back (this is a principal difference between tricycle and tricar). Puzanov started with his own car in the end of 1890-s, when he bought a Leon Bollee tricar from already mentioned in this thread A.A.Abrikosov, who sold these French cars in Russia. Most likely, the original car was produced in 1895. Leon Bollee tricar had a 1-cylinder 3hp engine. After purchasing it, he made some major improvements – the rear wheel diameter and width were increased, more elastic springs were applied to all three wheels, he also remade the seat and lengthened the gear. Increasing the cylinder’s diameter led to increasing power – from 3 to 4hp. Alongside with all these improvements some smaller ones were made. It is a first known conversion from road to race car in Russia.

Sport magazine’s race.

June, 3, 1901. Under the huge rain two drivers nevertheless sterted a race organized by a Sport magazine. Suurments, who came first, drove a 4hp car, and Tanskiy arrived 2nd in his 8hp car.

Results:
1. Samuel Suurmets (RUS) 4hp car – 51:7’5
2. Fedor Tanskiy (RUS) 8hp car – 1:31’10

II Hillclimb near Krasnoe Selo.

The second hillclimb competition was quite better organized than the previous one. This time the telephone net was used between start and finish points to time better. Though, it didn’t help, as the race was attended by the only competitor – Krupskiy.

Results:
1. Krupskiy (RUS) unknown – 2:23’36

1901 Moscow – St.Petersberg.

The longest run of 1901 finally, unlike previous years, should’ve been completed during one run and wasn’t divided into two runs. All five listed drivers arrived to a starting point in Moscow, but Peltzer (RUS) didn’t start his tricycle because of the mechanical problems. Finally, Mazy (driving together with Vadim Mihailov) finished in a proud loneliness, though made it almost out of time. Fedor Tanskiy and Samuel Suurmets retired near Tver (problems with tyres for Tanskiy, while Suurmets had something with a stone on the road), and Alekseev broke the axle near Novgorod.

Results:

1. Louis Mazy – Vadim Mihailov (F) Starley-Bertrand 6.5hp – 37:50 (18,328kmh)
DNF Fedor Tanskiy (RUS) Richard 8hp three-seater
DNF Alekseev (RUS) Starley-DeDion 3.25hp
DNF Samuel Suurmets (RUS) 4hp tricycle
DNS Peltzer (RUS) tricycle


1901 Starley-Bertrand 6.5hp

Specially for 1901 Moscow – St.-Petersberg race Louis Mazy remade one of the cars produced on his Starley-Psycho factory in Russia. While the technical part remained the same, including a standard 6.5hp Aster engine, the body was a completely new. Two seats instead of four for basic French body and much lighter aluminium bodypanels. It was one of the latest cars produced at Starley-Psycho (maybe even last) – on August, 8, 1901 a fire occurred at the plant – 200 bycicles and 6 tricycles were destroyed, and Mazy left Russia and returned to France, though entered one more race in 1902.
What is interesting, this exact Starley-Bertrand 6.5hp was sold to Port-Arthur, where worked in a fortress, and after Japanese took Port-Arthur it was taken to Japan and became a first-ever car there. Where it is now is unknown, though maybe it is still somewhere in Japan. Worth finding, I guess

Two most significant events for motorsports in Russian in 1903 were the establishment of Saint-Petersberg Automobile Club (SPAK) and Russian Automobile Society (RAO). The latter was founded to organize the traffic, drop some exhibitions, runs and races. But in fact all the 1903 races were organized by SPAK at Volhonskoe road, while RAO just kept silence.
The first event that year was a third annual Volhonka verst race in April. This time all the attempts were done in only one category, so the first position was easily taken by Alexander Korovin, who drove the most powerful 24hp Panhard-Levassor. Vadim Mihailov on 12hp Prunel got the second place and the third position came to Frese on 6hp DeDion-Bouton.
Results:
1. Alexander Korovin (RUS) Panhard-Levassor 24hp.
Dead start 1m 19.4s (48.4 km/h)
Flying start 1m 08.0s (63.2 km/h)
2. Vadim Mihailov (RUS) Prunel 12hp.
Dead start 1m 24.4s (45.5 km/h)
Flying start 1m 18.6s (48.8 km/h)
3. Frese (RUS) Panhard-Levassor 6hp.
Dead start 1m 42.0s (37.6 km/h)
Flying start 1m 25.5s (45.1 km/h)

The next race, Gentleman Race of SPAK at Volhonka, was a 23-verst run and could be attended by amateur drivers only.
Results:
1. Albert Efron (RUS) FN 2hp motorcycle 0h 30m 55s (47.6 km/h)
2. Konstantin Kapustin (RUS) / Boris Postnikov (RUS) Richard-Brasier 12hp car 0h 31m 15s (47.1 km/h)

On June, 26 Volhonskoe road saw the next race for 1 verst distance dropped by SPAK, both for cars and motorcycles. This time the record set up by Korovin in April wasnt beaten. After completing the verst distance competitors came to Krasnoe Selo for a 2 versts hillclimb event.
Winners (verst race):
Cars Bruno Farich (RUS) Richard 12hp.
Dead start 1m 23.6s (49.5 km/h)
Flying start 1m 10s (54.9 km/h)
Motorcycles Albert Efron (RUS).
Flying start 1m 20s (48 km/h)
Winners (hillclimb):
Cars Bruno Farich (RUS) Richard 12hp 3m 01s.
Motorcycles Albert Efron (RUS) 3m 04s.

Before going to Krasnoe Selo all the present saw the start of Konstantin Kapustins Richard 12hp car. With V.A.Reis (SPAK chairman), Boris Postnikov and a mechanic he successfully arrived in Revel a day after.

Many thanks for your corrections! Honestly, it's hard for me to write Russian names right using English letters Did you do any research on this subject? Seems you know it good.

As for Mazy (Masi, sorry ) - AFAIK he drove different Starley cars..

EDIT: Ah, I know who you are. Glad to hear from you, tending to buy your book soon

actually today in the Giro d'Italia a Russian rider (Pavel Brutt) won. He is a member of the Tinkoff team, owned by Russian millionaire with the same name, so not all double "ff" have disappeared...

It's a trademark Double-f looks more aristocratic and historic... Tho I can't say that Smirnoff, for example, is so aristocratic.
