MOSCOW, October 3 (Itar-Tass) - A motorcade which will accompany the 2014 Olympic Torch Relay ceremony was presented in Ivanovskaya Square, a territory inside the Kremlin Wall on Thursday. President of the organising committee of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics Dmitry Chrenyshenko attended the ceremony.
The motorcade numbers 31 Volkswagen cars. It is headed by cars carrying the chief coordinator and the Olympic Torch bearers. The motorcade includes a retro car dating back to the 1980 Moscow Olympics, and is meant to symbolise the succession of the generations.
The retro car has three symbols displayed on its body, which feature three buildings in Russia of symbolic significance to its citizens - the skyscraper of the Moscow university, the Luzhniki sports arena and the Fisht Olympic stadium in Sochi.
A movable covered platform provided with powerful sound amplifiers is to carry a group of promoters who will communicate with the audiences as the Olympic Torch Relay moves on. The promoters will hand out souvenirs promoting the Olympic show and do their best to create a holiday mood on the entire route followed by participants in the relay.
A special media track was arranged for photographers and cameramen who will be filming the torch bearers as they move on and turn over the Olympic Torch to participants in the next leg of the Olympics ceremony, which is going to be the main photo and video picture of the Olympic Torch Relay.
