Here is the latest May news of some of EBC’s assisted automotive racers who have had a good run on the tracks using EBC racing brakes.
This month’s blog feature includes race reports from Peter Burchill and the EBC Kumho BMW Cup Team:
Peter Burchill – Vulcan Racing
Peter Burchill and the Vulcan Racing Team were one of the 29 competitors racing in the MG Cup at Brands Hatch on Sunday 30th April 2017. Peter’s MG V6 engine saloon car was equipped with EBC Bluestuff NDX brake pads.
Peter and the team are looking forward to the Cockershoot Cup at the MG Live event, which takes place on Saturday 17th June 2017 at the Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire.
Here’s their report of the day:
We had good runs in both races and secured solid points for the championship finishing 5th in class in both races from the 29 cars racing.
Definitely a circuit that benefits from local knowledge but well worth the 5 hour trip down from Lancashire.
Regards Peter Burchill
Kumho BMW Championship
Here is the latest race news from EBC assisted racers Russell Dack, Paul Travers, Ben McClelland and Gieseppe Calari who were racing in the BMW Khumo Cup at Snetterton on 6th – 7th May in round 5 & 6:
Another great weekend of racing for EBC Bluestuff NDX brake pads running in the BMW Khumo cup.
The E46 A car went well in both races beating quick cars that were on slicks whilst we were running treads and Paul had a great race with ex touring car driver Rick Kerry – he was tenths of a second away from beating Garrie Whitaker’s lap record which has impressed many of the drivers.
Results of the day:
- Russell Dack – won both BMW Cup races.
- Paul Travers – won both A2 races and almost broke an impressive lap record doing 2-06 on treads.
- Ben McClelland – first time on, EBC grabbed a 3rd and a 2nd in his M3 Class B.
- Gieseppe Calari – won both D races.
