AWR (Anthony Woodford Racing) offers incomparable custom prototyping, restoration services to automotive manufacturers, 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 racers 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. 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 race car, creating a powerful and efficient rotary solution to compete with Toyota power plants. There are now several Rotary-Powered Atlantic’s campaigning in the Sports Car Club of America.
