Melbourne Performance Centre [MPC] has a reputation for building, maintaining and managing some of the best high performance and race cars in the region, a situation that just recently saw them invited to become one of few Audi Sport Customer Racing facilities outside of Germany.
Their niche is building, maintaining, transporting and supporting high performance and racing cars for racers from all walks of life.
MPC commenced operation by fabricating performance components and fittings for fast circuit racing and high performance road cars.
Initially working from a 220 square metre factory it became apparent that this would not be big enough for the future plans of the company. With the purchase of a Mainline AWD1500 4WD dynometer an additional 180 square metre factory was obtained within the same complex not long after. With this rapid expansion though it became apparent they would need larger premises, which led to their current 1000 square metre facility in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.
This added space has allowed the team to expand further, adding metal fabrication and carbon composites divisions. The team’s race car transport capabilities have also grown with the addition of two transporters including the new state-of-the-art PH Motorsport B-Double.
Whilst MPC continued to grow and focus on their growing customer base, their ongoing success and capabilities did not go unnoticed by other companies either.
Audi Sport Germany enlisted the support of MPC’s staff and logistics on both their 2011 and 2012 factory assaults on the Bathurst 12-Hour. The relationship grew even further in late 2011, with MPC becoming the Audi Sport Customer Racing Satellite team in Australia.
That relationship provides MPC with direct support from Audi Sport Germany and as part of the arrangement they are the only Australian supplier of all Audi Sport race cars and spare parts.
