Vyacheslav did his first overhaul not having moved a kilometer with this very engine. А father gave Vyacheslav a put-put for a bike as a gift in a slightly second hand condition. Rings turned out to be destroyed. In such a way being a five years old Slavik (affectionate name for Vyacheslav) became familiar with a tremendous and fascinating world of “self propelled carriages”.
It was very clear that the young boy was “carried away” by the subject instantly. First one motor bike after another, then a father’s car, after that a god-papa’s car and neighbors’ cars. Afterwards the self-made designs appeared which surpassed production cars in everything: in power and in beauty.
Which way a young boy who was brain washed with a sound of exhaust could choose? – Obviously the MADI (The Moscow State Automobile & Road Technical University). He graduated with honors and kept on crafting, racing on sports routes using everything which had a motor.
Suddenly he felt he was dying to tell the whole world what is a captivating thing – a car. Vyacheslav went to exercise his talents in “Za Rulem” magazine. He and his colleagues performed various experiments – they put the car on rails, jumped in a car from the bridge into the water, drove on the stream bottom, covered the car by a snow glide, blew up the cars. А vortex of over-extreme limit tests.
Nowadays Vyacheslav stepped into a new media space – a TV screen. He has become a host at Auto 24 TV channel. He has extended further his automotive circle. In his sphere of interest there are not only cars with four wheels, but also tracked vehicles and even vehicles with nuclear missiles onboard.
Vyacheslav has become very fond of rally-raids. In 2010 he together with colleagues-aficionados knocked a professional racing team GAZ Raid Sport, which has managed to win twice the National Championship on GAZelle LCVs and ready to conquer the Dakar race. Not as an atmosphere player but as a contender for a medal.
From July 2015 Vyacheslav Subbotin is a member of TOP-5 AUTO award expert jury.
