My story so far

During the last 7 years I was seriously involved in motorsport. I raced in many racing series: national – Ukrainian level, Romanian as well as international series. Drove on different surfaces an different disciplines: karting, single-seaters, rally, hill climbing, autocross, touring… During that period of time I had a lot of podiums and showed some good results. For statistics, I’ve successfully finished 30 professional races, 13 of which  were on podium. In other words, I finished on the podium almost half of the races .

Due to the financial issues, the last two seasons I was forced to stay outside the big races. I managed only to race and test in karting just to maintain myself. But I’m planning to get back to racing soon.

Also as a founder and President of Chernivtsi Oblast Association “Sports-technical club Valber Motorsport”, association that is specialized mostly on organizing sports events and promoting motorsport and sports in general in Chernivtsi region (Ukraine), in 2011, we won a grant contract for a cross-border sports project – “Through sports uniting destinies. Young sportsmans cross-border network -TYN”, MIS-ETC: 728. The project was financed by the European Union through Joint Operational Programme Romania-Ukraine-Republic of Moldavia 2007-2013. This project was implemented by COA “STC Valber Motorsport” and our partner from Suchava (Romania) – ABA-DEL-TIN Association. The overall objective of the project was to promote the concept of “active living”. It was an amazing thing seeing all those children from Chernivtsi region and Suchava county competing amongst each other in different sports like karate, athletics, table tennis, chess and backgammon. There were also handicapped children, orphan children involved in the project. We wanted them to feel themselves as complete members of society. Overall, it was a great experience working on implementing European cross-border project. For our association it was a great success that we are proud of and for me it was a pleasure working with children and giving them that possibility.

From January 2012 I started to work as a marketing manager at “ROM-UKR TRADE SERVICE” Ltd. Ukraine. This company is the official partner of Romanian PLASTSISTEM SA (producing sandwich panels) and FRIGOMATIC SRL (producing refrigeration doors) on Ukrainian market. I already, took part in participation of ROM-UKR TRADE SERVICE at a big Ukrainian specialized exhibition. I am also responsible for developing company's marketing strategy for a long and mid-term periods of time. I’m currently working on some of them. It is a new challenge for me and I enjoy it a lot.

That’s, a small story of what I have been doing for the last period of time. More detailed information to come.
