Tuning Velocity Motorsports forms alliance with Panda Motorworks
Tuning Velocity Motorsports (TVM) strives to compete at the top levels of rally racing in its own class to attain great results this year. Most recently, TVM owner and driver, Anthony Concha, achieved a 3rd Place Two-Wheel Drive national class podium finish at the STPR Rally in a 2014 Ford Fiesta ST.
To continue the team's progress, Tuning Velocity Motorsports, LLC has formed a technical and sponsorship alliance with Panda Motorworks, LLC. This alliance debuts at the 2015 Show-Me Rally in Potosi, MO and will continue into select events in the 2016 Rally America season including the famed Rally in the 100 Acre Wood in Salem, Missouri.
Panda Motorworks is an aftermarket performance company based in St. Louis, Missouri supplying quality performance parts and tuning for all makes and models. Many of the parts offered are engineered by Panda's owner, Chris Bauer. Panda currently specializes in the Ford Focus ST and the new Ford Fiesta ST.
Panda Motorwork’s founder, Chris Bauer. possesses a passion for performance and motorsports, which led him to pursue an education at Ranken Technical College, where he specialized in building race engines, cylinder head porting, and ECU tuning. While previous projects have included the venerable SVT Contour and Mustangs, Chris is currently engineering performance upgrades for the 2013+ Ford Focus ST, 2014+ Fiesta ST, and will soon begin work on the Ford Fusion and the all-new 2015 EcoBoost Mustang.
The partnership includes technology sharing, engineering, tuning and R&D for new products. This relationship will lead both sides to greater results, information gathering and results atop of the podium.
“This new relationship will help us grow, and push us to success when competing with teams at the highest level of the sport," added Anthony Concha, "Pandas knowledge of the Ford Fiesta ST platform will give us a leap ahead of the competition. I think that there are lots of exciting things we can do together in the future.”
