August 22nd, 2011

It can be summed up pretty easily: our fans mean a lot to us.

TKi would sincerely like to thank each and every TKi fan that joined us at New Jersey Motorsports Park on August 18th for our 1st TKi Fan Appreciation Day. Despite the early morning rain that turned into bright and sunny skies, TKi had a fantastic day with a terrific turnout of our friends joining us trackside.  The day ranged from time of your life rides in the TKi S60 race car, to complimentary hospitality and food, free raffle, autographs, and much more.

TKi would also like to give a large thank you to EuroSport Tuning, Viva Performance, and FCP Groton for their contributions to our raffle.  Thank you.

“I had an amazing time at the fan day put together by TKi.  Riding in the race car at speed really gave me an appreciation for the level of preparation performed by the team, driver, and car.  I put it up there with skydiving,” said attendee Michael Farrell.

“Our fans are a great deal of motivation for our racing program, and we’ve been very thankful for all of their support and involvement,” stated TKi Motorsport President and Team Principal, Josh Koropchak.

TKi Motorsport and VAC Motorsports Triumph at New Jersey Motorsports Park

June 19th, 2011

Millville, NJ: June 7, 2011: TKi Motorsport and VAC Motorsports stormed into New Jersey Motorsports Park for a victory at the BMWCCA New Jersey Premiere Event.  Driving ace, Josh Koropchak, drove the #26 BMW 330i Touring Car to both overall and class victories during Tuesday’s event.  This marks the first victory for Koropchak in a BMW.

For race 1 on Monday, Koropchak was at the wheel of VAC Motorsports E36 M3 Endurance Car.  Qualifying 4th in class, Koropchak showed an aggressive pace during the race, working his way up to 2nd place.  Unfortunately, with 7 minutes left in the race, and less than 1 second from the leader, Koropchak’s M3 sustained a terminal mechanical failure, forcing a DNF.

For race 2 on Tuesday, Koropchak drove the VAC Motorsports BMW 330i Touring Car.  Due to not finishing race 1, Koropchak was forced to start race 2 in 31st position overall and 7th in class.  With the drop of the green flag, Koropchak set his sights on the front of the pack, picking off one car at a time.  At the checkered flag, Koropchak crossed the line 5th overall and 2nd in class for a podium finish.

As the sun baked the tarmac on the circuit for the final race 3 on Tuesday afternoon, fans and enthusiasts filled the spectator areas, waiting for the BMW’s to take their grid positions.  With the green flag flying and BMW engines screaming, Koropchak darted from 4th place to 1st place overall on the first lap, and never looked back.  Crossing the finish line with headlights flashing from excitement, Koropchak scored a 1st place overall and class victory, with a blistering 20.963 second lead on 2nd place.

“Between the whole team remaining sharply focused and myself being totally committed to giving my best, we were able to prove that our tireless efforts were up to the vigorous challenges.  The foundation of both TKi Motorsport and VAC Motorsports businesses are to develop and prove parts that we sell, and nothing says that more than winning.  I would like to thank Tony Salloum for this opportunity, and I hope to be able to bring more wins to the team in the future,” stated Josh Koropchak.

TKi Motorsport and VAC Motorsports to Compete in BMW M3 at New Jersey Motorsports Park

May 17th, 2011

Jobstown, NJ: May 17, 2011: After competing in the SCCA 12-Hour Devil in the Dark, TKi Motorsport and VAC Motorsports will extend their presence on the racing circuit with entrance of a BMW M3 into the BMW CCA Premiere Event at New Jersey Motorsports Park Thunderbolt Circuit on June 6th and 7th.

The race event will consist of two, multi-class sprint races, one on each day, in order to test the endurance of the driver, car and team.  As this is a home event for both TKi and VAC, their hours of data-logged laps around the 14-turn, 2.25 mile Thunderbolt Circuit will prove invaluable, putting them well ahead of many competitors.

Champion driver Josh Koropchak is ready for the challenge.  “With the manufacturer change from Volvo to BMW for this season, I’ve had to learn a completely new car.  The BMW chassis was an easy adaption and is an excellent vehicle in terms of handling and power.  I am mentally and physically ready to secure top honors.”

TKi Motorsport and VAC Motorsports would like to extend an invitation for this event to all of their supportive fans.  Admission at the gate is $10 dollars.  We look forward to seeing you at the track!
