The Lewis Dean Motorsport Team have been racing once again this year in the Gurston Down Hillclimb using a powerful and reliable combination of Ultimax2™ Brake Pads and Yellowstuff Fastest Street, Trackday & Drift racing brake pads.

Here is their race report:

The EBC backed Subaru Impreza returned once again this April to the Gurston Down Hillclimb for the first meeting of the season after a winter of upgrades and testing. More power was added to the car which had us slightly worried that the brakes would not cope with the increase.

We had no need to worry – the combination of the EBC Ultimax2™ Brake Pads and Yellowstuff Fastest Street, Trackday & Drift racing brake pads seemed to work just as efficiently, if not better, as they did when the car had less power.

Let us not forget that these brakes have been on the racecar for two hillclimb seasons and although the pads and discs show some signs wear, which is expected, they are doing the job nicely.

Blustery conditions met the team on Saturday but the rain stayed away allowing for some fast times from the owner drivers Shaun & Sarah Fudge. Sarah reducing her times by 1 second or more on every run, Shaun on the other hand matched his personal best on his very first run.

It all looked well for a first place position for Shaun and at least a second or third for Sarah until gearbox failure ended what was going to be a fantastic start to the racing season.

The Subaru will now be fitted with a stronger race gearbox and will be ready to come out fighting again in May.

Thanks to EBC Brakes (shame they don’t make gearboxes) but when we want to stop … we stop!!
