Welcome to VAC Motorsports!

VAC Motorsports, as it is today, is the combination of Verna's Auto Clinic (V.A.C.), established in 1984, and Milano Engine and Machine corp, a multi-generation specialist of machine work and engine building established in 1963.

In the beginning, Verna’s was operating as a three-man shop specializing in bodywork & restoration. By 1987, we had added BMW automotive specialties and repair work to its many services. It wasn't long before Verna’s hit our stride with BMW and decided that, on top of maintaining and customizing, we needed more of a challenge; so, we entered the racing ranks.

After tracking locally for the early years, our first professional racing endeavors started in 1992, overseas in FIA-sanctioned rallies. We purpose built a Front Wheel Drive 1988 VW Golf (GTI 16V Model) Group-A Rally Car that entered competition in 1994. After just two years of hard work, we won the 1996 FIA F2 Group A Championship in the Middle East! Racing in these conditions teaches you many important racing lessons, including reliability and consistency.

The following years became even more exciting: Back home in Philadelphia of 1997, we expanded to become the modern VAC Motorsports that we are today, this time by acquiring a long-time neighbor and friend, Milano Engine and Machine. The family-owned and run Milano Engine and Machine was established in 1963 and had continued building winning-power for all manner of engines since that time.Paul Milano, a partner from the Milano-era, is still involved on a full-time basis as Chief Engine Builder and provides many years of experience and technical knowledge to VAC Motorsports.

The Milano acquisition was an important one because it helped truly make us a "One Stop Race Shop,” enabling us to become more competitive in both the sales and racing arenas due to our excellent quality control and turnaround time. We had officially become 100% in-house.

Since that time, VAC again expanded to operate a state-of-the-art Body Shop, Full-Service Repair shop, Full Engine & Manufacturing Machine Shop and provide new and used parts from a facility that covers more than 14,000 square feet. My brother, Armand Salloum, runs our repair and body shop and has the latest in frame equipment and paint technology.He and his team have extensive experience repairing many BMW street, custom, and race cars. The repair shop has very advanced factory-level diagnostics equipment, especially for complex late-model BMWs. There’s no job that is too large or small for this crew.

Our machine shop currently features the latest and greatest equipment; just a few include an RMC Boring Mill, Serdi Valve Machine, HAAS &Hurco CNC Mills, Automated grinding equipment, Romi and Doosan CNC Lathes, Crankshaft Balancer, 5-Axis Centroid CNC Machine, Newen Contour-BB Valve Machine, a Flow Bench along with Solid Works and Mastercam CAD/CAM Softwares. This is where we design, build, and manufacture engines and drivetrain components, along with our very own line of VAC Motorsports BMW Performance Parts that are used in High Performance Racing applications around the world.

Our parts department stocks a large variety of BMW Performance Parts along with hardcore racing parts. We welcome Hobbyists, Racers, and all end users alike as well as competitive pricing and know-how for our Dealers, Repair Facilities and Race Shops.Our "Race Development Shop" houses an industrial cleaning room, engineering wing, Chassis Dyno (A 2WD Dynopack/4WD Mustang), and our new Engine Dyno facility. This important piece of the puzzle gives us even more faculty to provide the expert service and specialty work that customers seek out around the globe.
