Ben has always been on or in something with a motor since he was old enough to walk. Growing up on the family farm outside of Orange NSW, Ben learnt at a young age how to ride, drive and fix things.
Ben completed his apprenticeship at the local Holden dealership before opening his own service centre in Orange.
Following on from the success of his service centre, Ben moved into the motorsport scene which is his ultimate passion and purchased, prepared and ran V8 Supercars for himself and customers.
In 2010 Ben made the move to Melbourne to capitalise on the motorsport opportunities being made available to him and expand his business. Since doing so, EMS has set up an impressive race shop that services a group of loyal clients who value both the branding, networking and social opportunities it represents.
