Sam Preston has seen significant braking improvements with his Apollo Balanced Big Brake Kit
Head to any track day across the UK today and you’re almost guaranteed to see at least a handful of EP3-shape Honda Civic Type Rs whizzing around.
The popularity of these revvy hot hatches is unsurprisingly only growing over the years as their raw, driver-focused thrills become increasingly appealing in a world full of more modern and driver assistance-packed machinery.
One driver who has recently caught the Type R bug is Sam Preston, a track day regular who purchased a 2002 Civic Type R last year as a dedicated second car that would almost solely be used on track days around the country.
While it remains relatively standard for now, one of Sam’s first upgrades was sensibly to overhaul the car’s braking system. Opting for a recently-launched EBC Brakes Racing Apollo Balanced Big Brake Kit, he’s since performed a couple of track days with the new set up and is delighted with the results.
Sam’s thoughts can be read below in his own words.
