AWR has been called upon many times by Mazda North American Operations to help build stunning Show Cars or Pace Cars. Mazda understands AWR's commitment to quality and excellence.
When an auto manufacturer puts their cars on display, it's their reputation on the line and they need the cars to be show quality perfect. AWR understands this, and is able to complete sometimes secret projects quickly and with amazing attention to detail. You can instantly appreciate the work that goes into these cars when you see one of them in person.
Sometimes the project may simply be fabricating and installing a safety cage, or can entail a full build, including race suspension, safety harnesses, lights, etc.
No matter if the car is destined for show or track, AWR puts the same attention to detail and build quality in everything we build. We don't do anything, just for show, even if that's all that's required.

AWR and Racing Cages are improving it's race track ability and safety.||This Protege5 was built for Mazda as the first pace car for the now household name, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. One of it's first uses was to pace the first MAZDASPEED CUP Spec Miata race.||This MAZDASPEED6 is currently being built by AWR for Mazda to use at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. So far, we just have before and after photos of installing the MAZDASPEED accessory suspension kit. This makes the car even lower than the stock MAZDASPEED6, and handle even better.|
