Default Vorshlag Open House + SCCA Solo Annual Tech, March 10th, 2012!

Many of you know that Vorshlag relocated to a new facility last September. Most of the construction was completed before we moved in, which many folks watched as we shared live pictures, and we've been working hard to put the finishing touches on our showroom and shop areas since then. To get the word out about our new location and to kick off the 2012 racing season we are having an open house party at the shop for our customers and friends. The Texas Region SCCA is also having their "annual autocross technical inspection" at our facility the same day. If you run this region's SCCA autocrosses you can have your car tech'd here on the 10th and you are set for the year - no more waiting in the tech line at each event.



Our new address is:

Vorshlag Motorsports
6913 K. Ave
Suite 307
Plano, TX 75074

The map graphic below will take you to our location within Google Maps.



Directions: If you know the city of Plano, we are located right across highway 75 from the Cinemark Legacy 24 theater... you can see our sign from their parking lot. Our building faces highway 75's northbound access road, but you have to enter our commercial complex from Avenue K. If you are coming from 75, exit Legacy, head east 100 yards on Legacy, then north on K for about 200 yards. Enter the complex on the left and head to the back, towards highway 75. You'll see us there.



The open house and tech party is Saturday, March 10th, from 9 am to 4 pm. Normally we are closed on Saturdays but we are going to be open that day for the party. We will have food, drinks, and give tours of the shop. You can see the cover car from the current issue of GRM - our $2011 Challenge winning BMW E30 V8 (which is going to be up for sale!), check out some of the cars showing the fabrication, exhaust, and other service work we can tackle.

Thanks!

The Vorshlag Open House and SCCA Annual Solo Tech party was a huge success. Even with rainy weather we had 37 cars show up for tech and about 100 people stop by the Open House event. We served up a lot of burgers and brats, 4 dozen kolaches and donuts were devoured, and 250+ sodas and beers were guzzled.

Vorshlag employees AJ, Matt and Ryan worked long hours all week and especially Friday night to get the shop, build room, store room, break room and lobby cleaned up and "finished". Here are some pics we took the hour before the Open House began....



Above pictures are the lobby & parts showroom. Ryan and Cameron fabricated the wall brackets for the grid displays last week - they came out perfect!



Above pictures are the hallway and order build room. Amy printed and framed those 6 pictures of current and former Vorshlag cars the Friday before the Open House. That BMW flag is one of 7 we hung that day also. New "shipping" table in the order room isn't visible.



These pics above are of the store room/photo studio and break room. The pictures below are of the fab area and service shop.



The fab area above was still a dirty mess at 10:30 pm the night before... Ryan moved all of the equipment out, swept up metal shavings and dust, and we mopped the entire shop late into the night.



The white 328is was being worked on all week and wasn't finished until 7:30 pm Friday night; it went on to win its class and PAX 7th overall at the autocross on Sunday. The two black work tables (above right) were built in the past week, along with two more elsewhere in the front offices. The oak tops are massive things and came out very nice with two coats of marine varnish.



That's the custom cake Amy had made for the event - a D-Force wheel and Bridgestone tire. It was damned tasty and feeds 80 people! That's Matt's desk on the right.

I've got more pictures on the Vorshlag FB page but I neglected to take pictures DURING the event... it was a mad house, and I didn't sit down for about 6 hours. We wrapped up at 6:30 then went and all crashed out. The Friday night marathon clean-up went until 2:15 am the night before so we were all bushed.

Thanks,
