Our Team

Vorshlag owner Terry Fair brings three decades of racing and engineering experience to the Vorshlag team and will race anything with 4 wheels. Terry graduated from Texas A&M University with a mechanical engineering technology degree and has worked in several engineering disciplines including metallurgy, mechanical equipment design, control systems, and wireless devices. He actively participates in motorsports events including autocrossing, open track events, time trials, wheel to wheel road racing, and drag racing.  He usually campaigns one of the Vorshlag race cars at 25+ competition events a year, often co-driving with his wife Amy.

With racing experience ranging from the V8 RWD (Camaros, Mustangs, Corvettes, LSx BMWs) to the "not-so-tire-shredding" (Miata, RX8, RX7, BMW E30, S2000, and 240Z), he understands the driving dynamics behind both high powered and momentum cars, and has been an instructor at countless autocross, track and Street Survival events. His obsession with reducing weight started many years ago and has always had an affect on car and component choices.

Vorshlag's co-owner Amy Fair is accountant, test driver, an avid autocrossers and NASA Time Trial competitor. During her 16 years of autocross experience she has won at the SCCA National Championships three times and is also at 25+ events a year with Terry.
