Performance Sponsors the Badger Bimmers BMW
CCA Track Event at Road America, and debuts
the KO Stage II Boost Kit for Dinan BMW Superchargers
September 25-26, 2004
KO Performance was proud to be the BMW performance
parts and tuning sponsor of the Badger Bimmers
BMW CCA (www.badgerbimmers.org)
track event at Road America Race Track (www.roadamerica.com)
in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin.
This year's event was a huge success, and is
consistently one of the entire Midwest Region's
largest BMW enthusiast events drawing BMW drivers
from Madison, Chicago, Indiana, and farther
away for spirited track sessions in four classes.
KO Sales Manager, and BMW CCA member,
Jim Nolden, was at Road America representing
KO Performance, and racing our
BMW M3 Supercharged 1997 E36 Saloon Track
Car, where we debuted our proprietary KO
Stage II Boost Kit for Dinan and ESS BMW Superchargers
for the first time under track driving conditions.
A skilled driver, with lots of experience at
Road America, Jim Nolden put a beating on
the new boost kit, and it beat back!
"I broke a personal best at the track with
a 2:36 at Road America. 5 whole seconds better
than my previous best. What a blast! The boost
kit performed flawlessly. The car made more
HP than I have ever seen before. I was seeing
another 10mph at the end of the straights with
this kit on the car. The people with E46 M3s
just watched as I passed them. There were so
many people coming up to look under the hood
of the car. It was definitely one of the fastest
cars in Group 3 Advanced Drivers."

A big step for KO, the success of our
first originally designed product was exhilirating
both on the track and off, as the other BMW
CCA drivers at the event saw first hand how
an older vehicle running boost as low as 8.5
lbs. could outperform all but the purely dedicated
track cars. Our car consistenly and competently
ran with Porsche GT3 Cup cars, Ferrari 355s,
and 3.2L Euro Motor Race M3s.
"Our goal with this kit was to achieve
a level of performance that would be a threat
on the track, and be reliable, and cost effective
enough for the street. We achieved that goal
and then some!"
Chairman of the Board and
Chief Executive Officer
The Badger Bimmers BMW CCA members ended the
event with an awards banquet, where KO gift
certificates were raffled off to the members
in attendance. Five gift certificates were awarded
to some very happy, soon to be KO customers.
