Our Race team
The founder of MWM racing, Trevor began racing by doing motor khanas and hill climbs in his road going Datsun. Over the years, his Datsun became more focused as a race car than a road car.
During the beginning of club cars (improved Production), he built a Gemini which gave him many more years of circuit racing experience.
In the early 2000's, Trevor drove for Osborne Motorsport in an Mr2 and one of Colin Osbornes' Celica's. This gave Trevor the opportunity to race at Mount Panorama Bathurst in the 24 hour race in 2002 and 2003. Racing for Osborne Motorsport, the team achieved a first in class in the Celica.
It was during these two years that Trevor first began developing his radio communication solutions for Motorsport applications with his communication solutions being used in both cars running for Osborne Motor Sport.
Trevor continued to drive for Colin through 2004, 2005 and 2006.
During the year of 2006, Colin put together a team to run at the Nürburgring 24 hour race. The team consisted of Colin, Trevor and the late John Teulan. The team achieved an 11th placing on debut in a Toyota Corolla Sportivo.
In 2007, MWM racing was founded when Trevor began the build of his 2003 Mini Cooper S. The car was debuted in the 2007 Bathurst 12 hour racing with Trevor, Tim Slade and Andrew Bretherton. The car placed 2nd in class E.
Trevor ran the Mini right throughout 2007 and placed 1st in the class B Championship.
In 2010 Trevor again got the opportunity to drive for Osborne Motorsport this time in Colin's new Mazda 3 MPS at the Bathurst 12 hour. This was the debut of these cars. The cars were plagued with teething issues initially, however before the beginning of the race the team got on top of them. After an eventful race, Trevor and his team mate Hadrian Morral placed 1st in class and 8th outright.
Over the last 8 years Trevor has been further developing his radio solutions while racing in several categories in a variety of different cars including Pulsar challenge and another two Bathurst starts in production cars, one in 2017 in the Mini racing alongside Dom Martens and his Son James, and another start in 2018 teaming up with Dom and James this time in the teams new Volkswagen Golf R where the team successfully brought home a 3rd placing on debut for the car.
Throughout the 2018 season Trevor has continued to develop new radio solutions testing them within our team at race-events with our own cars before finalising the solution for general sale.
Trevor has had a massive year preparing both the MWMRacing teams cars with his Son James for the 2018 Australian production car championship where both cars were successful in claiming their class championships for the year, with the Mini taking class D and the Golf taking the B1 championship.
James began his racing career in Go-Karts at age 12 in the junior category. This gave him his grass roots into the motor sport world.
In late 2015, James debuted in the Pulsar Challenge Series racing in an endurance race with Trevor, his father. James debuted in the Australian Production cars a year later in the Bathurst 6 hour, teaming up with Dom Martens and Jack Atley. He than completed a full season of Pulsar challenge in 2016, with numerous podiums and running as high as 3rd in the championship, he finished the season in 5th after mechanical issues at the last round.
James graduated to the Australian Production Car Championship racing the class D Mini Cooper S for 2017 racing alongside Dom in the Mini.
The first race in 2017 was the Bathurst 6 hour where James, Trevor and Dom teamed up and competed in the Mini, where the car was in podium contention all weekend until the final stint of the weekend where the car stripped the splines out of the hub resulting in a lack of drive.
James and Dom teamed up again for the Winton round of the production car championship where they came back hitting after their mistfortune at Bathurst, taking wins in both 300km races over the weekend.
James Teamed up with Trevor and Dom to contest the Bathurst 6 hour yet again, this time in their class B1 Volkswagen golf R where they fought hard across the weekend snagging a 3rd position on debut for the new car.
Throughout 2018 James raced in the class B1 Volkswagen Golf R alongside Dominic Martens, where their results were strong all year round, where are the first round at Sandown they took a 2nd in class, Queensland raceway came another 2nd in class, Winton the pairing were exceptionally strong bringing home a class win and 8th outright, at Sydney Motorsport park the duo snagged another 2nd class placing, and to finish off the year down at Phillip Island came another 2nd placing in class.
All the successful rounds throughout the 2018 season brought enough class points in for James and Dom to win the class B1 championship for the Australian Production car series for 2018 11 years after James’ Dad Trevor took the class B championship in the mini’s debut year in the Australian Production car championship.
