AM Racing – Polo Race Car

2017 is upon us and after the sale of our Mk1 Golf, pre-season was all about completing the new VW Polo Race car.
We had only 7 weeks to start and complete the car before the first race which meant many late nights, hundreds of phone calls and lots of driving around to get the correct parts. We cannot explain how tired we were day after day and night after night but we made the deadline!
These are the results 
Firstly, a big thank you to my dad for helping with this build it's been a crazy month and a half starting from just a shell to getting it complete, all the late nights and long days have paid off. Thank you to my friends, family and fiancé for being so understanding of the many missed birthdays and outings to get the car complete.
Then to my sponsors, thank you for all your contributions without all of you we wouldn't be nowhere near complete.
A big thank you to Ace Auto Scrapyard for their massive contribution and endless supply of parts you had in your yard.
A big shout out to Wikus, Ashley, Barnie and the rest of the guys at Delarey Racing Developments and Goldwagen Delarey you guys put your heart and souls into the engine bay and it came out better then we could have ever imagined. Thank you for answering literally hundreds of questions and phone calls.
Thank you to FSU Developments for the awesome products once again, I can't wait to see the final product you have planned for the interior.
Rion and Andre Octangle Marketing & Signage have really transformed the appearance of the car thank you for helping with the idea and stepping it up a couple of levels, I can't stop staring at the car!
Fuchs Lubricants South Africa thank you for the continued and greater support in 2017! We going to smash this one!
