Our History

PACE Innovations was founded by Paul Ceprnich in 2006. Paul Ceprnich is a highly experienced mechanical engineer with a lifetime of knowledge in the global automotive and motorsport industry. His experience, reputation and relationships acquired over after many years of commitment to motor racing led PACE Innovations to being established as a contracting design service to the Australian motorsport industry. Ceprnich was involved in the design process of various of V8 Supercar teams in the early stages of operation. During this time, Ceprnich continued to work as a race engineer in organisations competing in categories across the globe. The introduction of Project Blue Print into the V8 Supercar Championship and PACE Innovations’ involvement with the design of the new Ford Falcon FG led to company expansion and PACE Innovations employing fabricators to manufacture chassis for teams such as Ford Performance Racing, Stone Brothers Racing, Triple Eight Racing and Dick Johnson Racing. Since then, PACE Innovations has and continue to design and manufacture many one-off and production cars, with Championship-winning success, whether it be design, manufacturing, or trackside assistance.

The success of our endeavours in motorsport has also led to our involvement in other industries such as civil aviation, defence, commercial automotive, commercial building, mining and medical. In this short space of time, we have grown to become one of the leading race engineering consultancy services in Australasia and known for providing leading design and manufacturing solutions for a range of industries.
