Who we are

On completion of his apprenticeship in 1992, Michael Vidau worked as a workshop foreman for a further 4 years before deciding it was time to start up his own workshop.

MV Automatics was officially opened in December 1998 and currently has a long list of loyal clientele that continues to grow every day. On the back of a successful business, it wasn't too long before MVA Racing was born, and now Michael is in the enviable position of being able to combine his
business with his passion.

These two businesses have since developed, becoming one of the best automatic transmission outfits in Australia and allowing MVA Racing to continue with its unmatched reputation for preparing race cars for race days and getting the best out of customers' cars - from test and tune up days to national drag racing events.

MV Automatics was awarded the Small Business of The Year award in 2000 and has a strong standing in the hills community with contributions to various sporting clubs including: Angas Go-Kart Club, Flagstaff Hill Primary School Pedal Prix Team and Blackwood Kindergarten.

MV Automatics also takes on work experience trainees from surrounding schools and passes on valuable knowledge throughout their apprenticeships.
