Oleg Dagon Zholobov
Oleg took up karting at the age of 6. In 2018 he became a world champion in karting in the Sodi World Finals version and he believes for now this is the most valuable achievement in his career. In 2019 he finished second in the same event. When he was 14, he developed a passion for simracing. One year later he joined the team SMP Racing eSports. Oleg won three consecutive 24-hour marathon in St. Petersburg “White Nights Cup” (2020-2022).
His racing speed, consistent timing in long distance are his strong sides in his opinion.
His dream is to win the 24-hour marathon in Dubai.
All-time great racers in his opinion: Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Max Verstappen.
Of Phygital Games: “A very interesting experience which will help me in my development as a pilot”.
Fedor StayStance Bykonya
His parents brought him to karting. He remembers that he wasn’t hooked at the beginning but then he got the hang of it. And one year later his parents were having a hard time to make him take a break from training. Konstantin Kiryukhin was the first mechanic who discovered for the racer all amazing technical subtleties and peculiarities of the series. He was the one who brought up Fedor. At first, he participated in children’s competitions and in 2017 he moved into a new class and claimed his first champion’s title. This win earned him a spot at the international competitions Rotax Max Grand Finals in Portugal and motivated him to try his hand at the new class OK-junior. Therefore next season he won the memorable bronze medal at the stage in Ryazan and became vice-champion at the Rotax event. Yet he believes he achieved his career best result at Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals 2019 and confessed he could write a whole story about the season-2019.
Now studies came to the fore of his life, but his love for sports and racing are still there.
He is tenacious and result-oriented, and these are his strong sides. His weak sides: emotional and prone to panic.
His goal is to return to sports and begin to show decent results again.

“Phygital format is the most logical continuation of other sports disciplines. For example, digital motor sport is rapidly developing, practically in all directions at that, which makes it possible to fully train and prepare for real competitions even at home. I believe the future belongs to phygital”.
