His love for motor vehicles started from an early age. He completed his apprenticeship with Alfa Romeo in Sydney as well as working with the Piccola Scuderia Formula 3 race team responsible for setting up and monitoring the race cars. He was the only person permitted to evaluate vehicles by his auditory and sensory skills, whereas other technicians used computer equipment. This fine tuned his incredible ability to analyse and detect problems and solve them faster and more efficiently.
He then went on to successfully operate his own automotive workshop, Harold Park Mechanical Repairs in Sydney for 18 years. The business was acknowledged for its service to the community and was voted winner for the Most Outstanding Automotive Repairer in the coveted Inner West Small Business Awards in 2000, and was a finalist in the years 1992, 1993 and 2002. The business was also a finalist in The Champion of Champions of NSW for Most Outstanding Automotive Repairer for the years 2001 and 2003.
Since moving up to the Gold Coast, prior to opening Maranello he has worked for EuroMarque as a service manager for the Gold Coast, Queensland’s dealer for prestige vehicles including Ferrari, Maserati and Bentley.
His passion for vehicles reflects in his exceptional workmanship, knowledge and customer service.
