EBC Yellowstuff brake pads make rally car racers happy

EBC Brakes sponsor rally racers from all around the world in many different kinds of racing, but the one thing they have in common is how much they all love using Yellowstuff brake pads.

Here is a selection of recent race reports from our happy rally racers:

EBC Swedish distributors G Partners sponsored rally race team MikaelKarlsson Motorsport from Sweden put their EBC Yellowstuff brake pads to the test when they raced at the Nürburgring.

KJell-Åke G said about Mikael

We are getting more and more Rally Customers who are using Yellowstuff brake pads and they are very happy with them! I also want to report that we managed to come home with our nice Jaguar during the Cheap Race.
We got a 9th place among 27 cars so we are rather pleased with that.

This film taken by Nürburgring crew shows us at the ring (see below).
Thank you for your support EBC!

Mikael Karlsson said about the Nurburg Ring race:

We at Mikael Karlsson Motorsport give thanks to sponsorship by our Volvo 70 Group F. We raced at the Nürburgring the rally on Saturday, August 15 with EBC Yellowstuff brake pads fitted.


Lewis Dean Motorsport in action!

Lewis Dean Motorsport

Shaun and Sarah Fudge, owners and drivers of the Lewis Dean Motorsport Subaru Impreza WRX  returned to Gurston Down Speed Hill Climb on Sunday 19th July.

Supported by EBC Brakes the season has gone well for them so far with the team consistently finishing in the top four of their class.

The team had been previously using EBC USR Slotted Rotors with Yellowstuff brake pads which proved to be extremely effective and have contributed to the teams trophy haul. This month saw the EBC supported Impreza shod with an alternative EBC Brakes combination of the BSD Blade Rotors with EBC Blue stuff Pads.

After testing and a bedding in period for the pads/discs they just got better and better as the weekend progressed, installing confidence in the drivers with each run.

Shaun said:

I highly recommend this superb brake set up for fast road or hillclimbs.

The team continued with their consistent success this weekend with Shaun’s result a 2nd place finish and Sarah a respectable 4th.

Last weekend Fredrik Øksnevad won the Norwegian Championship title in the classic  “Sideways Competition”. Fredrik drives with the GD Sport Rotors and Yellowstuff brake pads fitted.

Here is Fredrik’s race report:

With over 70 cars that ran for qualification in the wet conditions on Saturday, it was great Autumn weather during Sunday’s Norwegian Championship in the classic “Sideways Competition”. There were high feelings among the drivers, top entertainment for the audience and of course a lot of tension to this competition as everyone looked forward to it.

It was very steady at the top, but a worthy winner was named ; Fredrik Øksnevad! On Friday, it did not seem that I would be driving, but a big thank you to my good buddy and mechanic Marius Fossheim, we did make it.

I did not imagine I would be here today with my very first laurel wreath around my neck. Thanks to everyone who had faith in me. “This was really fun” said a tearful and proud Fredrik Øksnevad.

This view of blue sky and nice cars goes into the book with good memories from last year’s Gatebil festival at Rudskogen. If you have not had enough yet, Gatebil at Mantorp is just a few weeks away!

EBC GD series Brake Rotors

EBC GD Series brake disc rotors are now available in a “thermic black” and NITROTHERM™ finish and feature wide aperture slots that draw cool air under the brake pad and rotor interface which help cool the temperature of the brake pad contact that can easily and often shoot up to well over 1000 degrees during heavy braking and can cause brake fade or loss of brake effect – the cool effective use of the slots helps prevent this.

BSD (Blade Sports Disc)

BSD (Blade Sports Discs) are made from a unique material known as “discalloy” for front and rear fitments. The blade slot design is specially crafted to remove hot gases in an efficient way to help keep brake pads cooler and flatter. The multiple slots overlap to reduce the brake wind sound.
