Morehead Speed Works is proud to carry the full line of MPI steering wheels and accessories.
MPI stands for MAX PAPIS INNOVATIONS and was founded in 2009 by Max Papis and Tatiana Fittipaldi Papis, in Mooresville, NC. Max and Tatiana have a long background in racing. Max has been a professional race car driver since he was 12 years old. Since then he has raced in Formula 1, Champ Cars, Indy Cars, IMSA, Grand-Am, IROC, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, being the European driver with most NASCAR start in history.
MPI takes every aspect of construction and safety to heart, in the most accurate and dedicated way possible. Before becoming an MPI product, the structures need to pass internal quality control tests. Amongst the many, one is a torque structural steering wheel test that is considered one of the most severe on the “road car” market. Another is a stress test to see what our steering wheel does when a load is applied to it. This simulates what happens when you keep your hands on the steering wheel during a severe impact. Just a couple of examples of how MPI’s technology works and how safety and construction R&D is applied to all MPI products.

MPI offers quality wheels for nearly all forms of racing, even offering different grip material to suit the driver. All of our new builds at MSW receive a MPI wheel and many of our long-time customers are upgrading their wheels to MPI with very positive feedback.
