Who or what is Oleg? They just had bodies approved for IRRA® Retro racing, but I do not know the company.

Both ERI and Eagle carry Oleg. Mid-America Raceway and Hobbies stocks their products.

I found a reference on a UK slot car site that indicates Oleg was formerly Kolhoza, which I believe is a slot car company in Russia. At least, according to their Facebook page, the company's email address is kolhoza-oleg@mail.ru. That address also suggests the company is owned by Oleg Kolhoza.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Oh!
 
I remember old Oleg. He raced with us in Riverdale in the '60s. He had the Cox controller and the good-looking wife.
 
Or was that somebody else?
 
As we get older we can remember it any way we want or not at all.
 
Thanks for the info. :D

Eddie,  

 

I think that was the track owner Robert Berry.

Where is the announcement of the approval(s)?

They have some rather impressive DTM and LMP bodies as well. We approved their Acura ARX this year for the Ohio Challenge Cup.
