Supercars team Tekno Autosports is set to open the doors of its expansive new workshop to fans this Sunday.

The reigning Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 winning team will show off the multi-million dollar, 4,500sqm facility that it moved into in April.

Located between the Gold Coast and Brisbane in Yatala, Queensland, the new workshop has been built with an emphasis on expanding the Tekno Performance road car division.

As well as the basics required to run its Triple Eight-built Supercar, the workshop features a chassis dyno that will enable Tekno to bring a key area of its road car work in-house.

Tekno Performance sells and fits a variety of aftermarket upgrade parts and packages to road cars, including Holden's Commodore-based and Colorado models. 

Sunday’s official opening will be undertaken by Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate and hosted by media identity Charli Robinson.
