S&B Automotive was established in it's Hurlstone Park location for over 60 years. Family owned and run, it was founded by Stephen’s grandfather in 1949 and can trace its motorsport roots back to 1947 and Australia’s famous Bathurst racetrack. Stephen continued the motorsport tradition with his work preparing and pit crew for Formula Fords in the 70’s, and still builds and races within the NSW MX-5 Cup.

In 2018 the workshop was moved to Minto, in order to provide a larger space, where the team could grow and continue to provide the outstanding service Stevens and Brennan has always been known for.
