Featured In the September 2019 issue of Roadracing World:

        If a rearset bends or snaps at a track day or race, a racer or track day rider hasn’t just lost the cost of a replacement part. It can mean the end of their day at the track, with all of the associated costs, and can mean even more to the racer chasing wins, podiums, or titles.

        “You’re going to drive one to five hours to get to the track, get a hotel room, do all of those things to do a track day. Then you tip it over in the first practice session because the tires are cold… There’s a lot more tied up in (doing a track day) than just the part,’” says Eric Wood, President of Woodcraft Technologies, Inc.

        Wood knows—he and his family are deeply immersed in U.S. road racing. Not only are they racers, they operate the Penguin Racing School and develop aftermarket products for racers, track day riders and performance riders. And they’ve done so for years.

        All of them understand how component reliability in the toughest of conditions is critical for everyone who rides a motorcycle …

 Eric Wood isn’t just a racer or head of one of the premier aftermarket component companies in the U.S. He’s also a hands-on developer of some of the most racer-friendly aftermarket components in the business. Check out how Wood personally makes sure his company’s products are as good as they can be by taking them onto the track himself – all the details are in the September issue of Roadracing World!
