About P R Motorsports in Hayward, CA
P R Motorsports is a family owned and operated auto repair and service facility specializing in Acura, Honda, Mazda, Toyota and Scion service and repair; with an excellent reputation in the industry built on customer loyalty.
Centrally located in the San Francisco East Bay Area, P R Motorsports has been servicing customer's cars since 1981. Our #1 goal is to be the SF Bay Area's "go to" shop for all Honda, Mazda, Toyota, Scion and Acura service or repair needs, with a high level of customer service and top quality auto repair.
P R Motorsports' long-term success is based on a simple concept: "provide trusted, top quality repair and service at a fair price." This means complete thoroughness in all services and a deep attention to detail resulting in an extremely low percentage of "come-backs" (an auto shop term for unhappy customers "coming back" due to failed or improperly installed parts).
Caring for the customer has always been a primary focus at P R Motorsports, resulting in high levels of customer loyalty and trust. Not only does P R Motorsports have many second generation customers (children of long-time customers who have reached driving age and are now clients), but it has at the same time earned unprecedented levels of high marks at three of the top online consumer rating services – Yelp, Google and CitySearch.
Meet the Team
Laura Munoz– Owner
General Manager and Co-Owner Laura Munoz has worked at P R Motorsports since 1988, progressing steadily from her initial role as receptionist and scheduler to her present day role as overall General Manager of the business.
Since day one she has been highly effective as the primary interface with customers, with her role expanding each year as her competence and experience grew, until the present day where she over sees all aspects of the general operations of the business. She has been a vital factor in the success and growth of the business over the years, and now looks forward to leading the business into even more growth.
Laura's interest in cars goes back to her childhood, and she has shown her continued strong understanding of cars by learning to do the maintenance on her own vehicles, at one point even rebuilding her own engine.
She's a confident and accomplished driver on the track, having participated in several track events as well as the Bay Area's product introduction of the first Miata back in 1989. She provides a wealth of knowledge and good advice for our customers.
Hector Lugo – Lead Mechanic
Lead mechanic Hector Lugo has been an important member of the team and an asset to the business since 1991, providing leadership and exemplary mechanical skills out in the shop. A 1986 graduate of the Sequoia Institute, he has developed a solid reputation not only as a top-notch mechanic, but also for his ability to relate to customers and provide any technical information they seek. A true "mechanic's mechanic" he has shown the ability to figure out just about anything. He has an extensive background in Mazdas (ask him about his RX-2 sometime!), and is our resident Mazda expert.
His trademark is looking beyond the obvious when servicing or diagnosing cars – going that extra mile to make sure customers are well cared-for and that all work is done thoroughly and correctly. When he's not at work, he enjoys time with his wife and son.
Rick Weldon - Founder

Although Rick has retired to New Zealand, P R Motorsports has continued to carry on this tradition.
