Thumbs up VAC Motorsports | 2011 - Year in Review (lots of pics)

Well, I joined officially in June so you will get the last half of 2011 That is also when we joined the forums for the first time! It was a pretty crazy year - lots of shows, training events, races, track events and trade shows. You could have found someone from Team VAC in: USA, Germany, The Netherlands, UK, Lebanon and a few other countries. Hundreds of amazing cars came through the Performance Center - existing and new customers alike. It was also great to meet a lot of local chaps.

Huge thanks to everyone for trusting us with your projects, we really appreciate it. 2012 will be even crazier, trust me!

Below you will find some pics...a few events are missing. I'm focusing on actual events and VAC cars...with one or 2 over the top customer projects tossed in.

A few random snaps from early 2011:
HAAS 5 axis arrives to join our 4 other CNC machines:

Beautiful HPF E46 in for some paint work:

Performance BMW is in town to shoot the EVL BMR at FDR Skate Park down the street from our shop (more on EVL later)

Yani's S54 E30 is born at VAC. It's know as the 'White Elephant' (more on this later)

One of Bob's '02s:

We transform 'Bella' from a basic training car to a competitive race car in just 1 week. This was for the 'Devil in the Dark' 12 Hour at NJMP.

5th Annual SONIC Meet. We round up our 135i, our Touring Car, Anderson's GTR, White Elephant, Steve's E30 M3, Brian's E30 M3, Dave's Cayman and about 100k in parts and engines for the 5th Annual Sonic Meet. Great meet loaded with lots of enthusiasts. BMW content was relatively limited, but I hope that changes for 2012 - this event has a great purpose.
