Died Boris Sinelnikov — veteran of the magazine “Behind the wheel” who gave journalism a good three decades.
Came to the editorial office technologist one of the defense plants, he remained an engineer mentality. To understand the product, work or tricky the defect of a mechanism and clearly explain everything to the reader, to not feel helpless when a stalled engine or a flat tire, — such was the professional credo of Boris.

Experienced readers will be glad to call your favorite sections and headings of the journal: “the Club of motorists”, “seasoned Advice”, “self”, “Experience “driving” a”, “Competition of experts”. All of them were filled with the active participation of Sinelnikov, many were born according to his idea — he told our readers the advice of “experienced”.
Of particular genre was external technical advice to readers — simply replies to letters coming to the editor in the hundreds monthly. The main value were those that were able to glean good advice for the famous rubric. To catch these tips were required not only knowledge and intuition but also a lot of patience.
Boris Sinelnikov, one of the first to conduct editorial testing of the cars of today, this genre became the basis of every automotive publication. Current readers are already difficult to explain why in the early 1970s, have been waiting for so eagerly poring over his records under the straightforward title “We’re going to the Zhiguli”.
The voltage of the editorial work shot sports. Boris Sinelnikov participated in motorally, raids, and the race for the first domestic snowmobile, started in an eco rally — as an athlete, organizer and, of course, a journalist. Another passion of his was “non-motorized” sport — fishing. Colleagues saw her as a big joke, but Boris was not offended: he knew that fresh ideas often are born not behind a Desk. A father’s love for engineering and meticulous in her knowledge was inherited by the eldest son, who became a specialist of the car service.
Boris died on 4 January 2018, shortly before his 83rd birthday. Comrades will remember a strong “techie”, but most importantly — a journalist, above all puts the interests and expectations of readers.
