Achievements: Runner-up in the Driver Standings of the Classic Car Rally Club in 2018.

Konstantin’s racing career started with the foundation of the racing team. In June 2013, he competed as a driver at the L.U.C. Chopard Classic Weekend Rally. There, at his first race, Konstantin managed to reach the finish line and to maintain that effort during his next 15 races. Konstantin's racing style is defined by modesty, timely braking and tradition: the team’s car of choice is the sky-blue ZAZ-965A V4 887 Pumpkin Special LE (Konstantin's personal car), which makes it possible to conduct test runs with unprecedented frequency.

Achievements: 3rd place in the Сo-driver Standings of the Classic Car Rally Club in 2018.

Before starting his career as a co-driver, Mikhail was an avid reader and enjoyed transcribing during his English sessions at MGIMO, where he was noticed by the owner of the team Konstantin Golota. For five seasons, he has been pushing forward on his journey to success sometimes slightly deviating from the winning route (e.g. when ranked 21st at the Ingosstrakh Exclusive Classic Day rally in 2017). However, his internal compass helped to find the right course time and again, and, at the end of the season 2018, the team achieved the ultimate victory in the Classic Car Rally Club (CCRC) Final, which made it champions and secured a personal cup for Mikhail.

Hobbies: fantasy author, screenwriter, humorist.

Joined the team in 2017

By 2017, the team had been showing robust performance, which helped to attract media attention, as well as more fans. Following the decision to expand its ranks, the team invited Leonid Kaganov to write running commentary on races from the passenger seat. Leonid's being a fantasy author and a humorist may lead some sceptics to doubt the reality of Zaporozhets’ successes. Still, it is thanks to his talent that the overwhelming majority of the audience is able to experience in full the emotions and thrill of the competition.
