AWR was founded in 1995. AWR developed a relationship with MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development, a division of Mazda North American Operations, developing various parts for the grassroots racing industry. AWR then designed and prototyped a rotary powered Formula Atlantic race car, creating a powerful and efficient rotary solution to compete with Toyota. There are now several Rotary-Powered Atlantics campaigning in the Sports Car Club of America.
AWR is now concentrating growth on advanced suspension design and exhaust system technology. Under Tony Woodford watchful eye and uncompromising standards, the Formula Atlantic project will be pushed to the next level. Meanwhile, grass roots developments continue to evolve with products for Touring and GT racing teams, and Formula One projects are expanding as well. AWR entered the Speed World Challenge Series with a 2001 Mazda Protege, driven by Charles Espenlaub a couple years ago, and has since built another beautiful example of a Touring Car for Gary Gist.
