Our Crew

AWR (Anthony Woodford Racing) offers high performance aftermarket products, incomparable custom prototyping, racecar engineering, and restoration services to automotive manufacturers, car enthusiasts, racers and collectors.


Tony Woodford learned his craft from an old-world master... from restoring vintage sports cars and building one-off aluminum prototypes, to forming compound curves, molding fiberglass and carbon, and redesigning vintage racecars to compete against technologically advanced models, he developed technical expertise and meticulous fabrication skills that would be sought after by premiere auto racing operations and enthusiasts.


In 1986 Tony focused on the auto-racing field, joining various SCCA Racing Teams, including Overton Autosport — an IMSA GTU team. From 1989 to 1993, he worked with Nissan Performance Technology, which fielded a successful GTP Team with drivers such as Chip Robinson and Geoff Brabham. This was followed by heavy involvement with Formula Atlantic Professional teams.


Tony founded AWR in 1995, and quickly developed a relationship with MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development, a division of Mazda North American Operations, developing various parts for the grassroots racing industry. He then designed and prototyped a rotary powered Formula Atlantic racecar, creating a powerful, efficient, and affordable rotary solution to compete with Toyota power plants. There are now several Rotary-Powered Atlantic’s campaigning in the Sports Car Club of America.


AWR Racing, Inc. is a family-owned company based in San Diego, California, specializing in aftermarket performance products, race car engineering, and restoration. All products are designed by Tony and made in-house, using laser cutting, CNC folding, and machining. AWR continues to offer a variety of products suitable for daily drivers, modified drivers, autox, and track builds. All AWR manufactured products are provided with a lifetime warranty on the steel fabricated unit.
