About Us

OUR story

Our Beginnings

Established in 2015, JDM Motorsport is a living tribute to the enduring passion and dedication of its founder, Selwyn. His lifelong infatuation with JDM cars, sparked during his teenage years by owning a Series 1 RX7 and later a R32 Skyline, followed by many years in the high performance / motorsport sector, sowed the seeds for the birth of JDM Motorsport.

From its humble origins in a small tin shed with just a hoist, toolbox, and Selwyn as the hands-on craftsman, JDM Motorsport has blossomed into the modern workshop it is today.

JDM Motorsport today

Through years of burning the midnight oil, relentless effort, and continuous upskilling, we’ve transformed our business into its current form – we now stand as a team of highly sought after and skilled individuals, operating from a newly expanded premises adorned with beautiful epoxy resin flooring with clean modern workstations. Notably, our workshop boasts a brand-new dyno cell featuring the 3000 HP Mainline Hub Dyno.

As the proud owners of a family run business, we’ve dedicated ourselves to building a workplace where everyone feels valued and appreciated. From the early days we’ve deliberately crafted an atmosphere of camaraderie, where banter is not just noise but a testament to the bonds we share.

For us, it’s about creating a space where our team genuinely looks forward to spending their days. We understand the importance of this space, knowing that for many, your workspace becomes like a second home.

Our real thrill lies in turning your vision into a tangible reality – something you can see, touch, and truly experience. Whether it’s getting your car running smoothly, building it from start to finish, or fixing a broken component, our unwavering commitment is driven by the desire to deliver an epic outcome for our customers every time.

Leaving school at 15 to pursue his automotive trade qualification, Selwyn’s career embarked on a dynamic journey. He honed his mechanical skills at a workshop in New Zealand specializing in restoring classic European Jaguars and Aston Martins, dedicating seven years to the craft and fostering his keen eye for detail.

Now with many years under his belt in the high-performance car sector here in Australia, Selwyn’s expertise has extended beyond being a mechanic, he’s a well-respected engine builder, fabricator, tuner, and wiring specialist and he takes immense pride in mentoring our team members to grow and better their own skillsets.
