15-year-old RP-1™-equipped racer reached the top spot at all eight rounds held this year

The BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship is the ideal ‘first step’ into car-based competitive motorsport, catering for 14-17-year-olds and exclusively featuring the mighty Mk6 Ford ST150.

Competing as a rookie in 2019, Joseph Loake completed his first full season of the Fiesta Junior Championship this year with the Race Car Consultants team, creating a storm in the process by winning every single round on the calendar and therefore the overall championship title.

Loake used EBC Brakes Racing’s RP-1™ track/race pads on his Fiesta throughout the year. You can read his thoughts on this product, and the season in general, in his own words below.

“All in all, the year went very well. I managed to win every single race and was on pole after qualifying for every race, too.

“I started using RP-1™ pads after my team owner, David, asked me to try a new set of brakes at the start of the year.”

“He didn’t tell me what brand they were at the time, but straight away, I could feel that they were much better than the OEM products we’d been using before. After three laps, I knew we had to use them for the season – there was so much more feel and predictability which helped me push forward in the series.

“There are a number of ideas to progress into another series for 2021, so we’re just discussing the best options that fit our budget before making a decision.

“Thanks to David and James at Race Car Consultants for a fantastic year!”
