Cars are complex machines, and it takes someone who understands all of their nuances to keep them road worthy, even well beyond their logical operational date.
Thankfully, such a place exists; where you can take just about any car and have it looked after by a team that really knows what they are doing. That place is RSP Motorsports in London, On.
The company, which is in its 12th year of operation, was started by Renato Fausch, a Swiss who in his travels came across Canada’s version of London, and decided to settle down here with his family.
Fausch brought with him decades of experience in the automotive business, and due to his vast knowledge on the subject, he was able to find a job very quickly in this town.
However, what he really wanted to do was to set up his own shop, a place where car enthusiasts can rely on and bring their special cars for service. London does have the largest per-capita of millionaires in Ontario, and that means there are some unique and exotic cars in this city. All such cars need servicing, and RSP Motorsports goal was to establish a place to serve to their needs locally, rather than their owners having to send the car to the Toronto-area.
The business plan was taking shape, the potential was found, now all that was needed is a proper facility, the right equipment, and the right team to make it work.
The right land for the facility was found in Kilworth, On., just five-minutes west of London. RSP Motorsports wanted the finest and most advanced diagnostic systems that can work on all modern cars, and hence created a manufacturer spec test facility, complete with a high capacity dyno with a wind tunnel that helps simulate real world driving conditions.
The right team took some searching, in order for RSP Motorsports to succeed; they looked for people who not only had experience working on European sportscars, but also individuals who had a real passion for cars. A quick meet with all the team and you will realize that Fausch found his “A-team.”
Fausch commented, that “if you have the right people and offer great service, even an economic slump won’t affect the business.”
Having shown a growth in every single year of his 12-years of operation, even during the economic downturn, it is clear that the philosophy behind RSP Motorsports is different from other service shops, and is the reason behind their success.
