Here in the UK RaceShocks UK is one of the leading partners with this fantastic brand.  We not only offer the regular Penske kits but very much work on creating bespoke kits for our customers.  From Hillclimb single seaters and Caterham circuit racing, short track oval or Modern Classics like Escort Mk2 Tarmac Rally cars.  We have the experience to build and create the best damper for your vehicle.

We also offer service, revalve and dyno testing of course.  If you feel there could be more performance available then contact us to discuss the possibilities.

We don’t only support professional race teams; we offer the same technology and technical support to grassroots racers. 

All applications are custom built to your specific needs.

We take into consideration driving style, spring rate, vehicle weight, and type of tracks. This ensures you’re getting a custom shock specific to your application. Other manufacturers build all shocks the same, we know not all car set-ups, or drivers are the same, so why would the same shocks work for everyone? THEY DON’T! We can supply many different models of shocks for your needs. Models include adjustability levels ranging from Non-Adjustable, up to 4-way adjustable. We also can offer in-line, remote, or piggy back shocks. All shocks utilize standard Penske internals, so you can always utilize our latest technologies and stay current with your shocks. No need to purchase new shocks as new parts are debuted, simply update your current shocks.

It is our goal to give all racers the experience of a perfectly handling vehicle. Shocks do make a difference; this advantage is something all racers, competing at all levels, should experience.

Penske Racing Shocks (PRS)

PRS was formed in 1988 when the need for a higher performing shock absorber was identified by the Penske Racing Indy Car team. A small design office was established in Reading, Pennsylvania to produce high-quality 4-way adjustable dampers. Based on the success of Penske Racing, others noticed the competitive edge they enjoyed from a properly handling race car and made inquiries about the shock absorbers. Eventually, PRS began to supply shocks to other Indy Car teams, as well as move into the F1 market.

As word spread about the performance, quality, and response of a Penske Racing Shock, more and more teams acquired the product. PRS quickly moved into many more racing sanctions including multiple sports car and open wheel series and in many instances, our products were original equipment from the chassis manufacturers.

    PRS and NASCAR

    PRS attracted NASCAR attention when the need for a higher performing damper was required to accommodate increasing car speeds. Extensive work to enter the NASCAR market paid off in 1990 with the first Daytona 500 win. Since that point, PRS has enjoyed an increasing market share in NASCAR in all the various premier series and have been the exclusive rear shock supplier for Super Speedway events since 2000.

    PRS expansion

    Race wins, championships and word of mouth acclaim allowed PRS to expand into many more markets. Shock absorbers were designed for drag, late model, midget, modified, and sprint car race markets, as well as professional motorcycle racing.

    PRS is a primary shock supplier in the AMA Flat Track racing series

    But their motorcycle products don’t end there – there is also a line of shocks designed for Harley Davidson’s and street bikes. The short track market continues to grow much in the same way the NASCAR market did. As cars become faster and more technical, the demands on suspension are increasing. The days of carrying around 100 shocks are fading as teams are beginning to understand that owning a few sets of Penske Racing Shocks allow them to rebuild and finely tune their suspension to accommodate varying track conditions and driver-specific feedback.
