Lewis Dean Team discover best hillclimb EBC brake combo

Here is the latest news on Lewis Dean Motorsport racing in the 2016 Gurston Down Speed Hillclimb in their Subaru Impreza, for which they’ve just discovered the best EBC brake combo for hillclimbing:

EBC Subaru/Honda 2nd In Class

Shaun and Sarah Fudge, owner/owner-drivers of the Lewis Dean Motorsport Subaru Impreza WRX returned to Gurston Down Speed Hillclimb on Saturday 16th April, supported by EBC Brakes. 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 season saw the EBC supported Impreza shod with an alternative EBC Brakes combination of the BSD Blade Rotors with EBC Bluestuff NDX brake pads.

Shaun said:

This brake combination just got better and better as the day progressed, installing confidence in the drivers with each run. This is definitely the recommended set up for fast road or hillclimbs.

The team continued their consistent success this weekend with Sarah taking a second in class before engine problems on the Subaru set in to end the days’ enjoyment.

Sarah and Shaun returned to Gurston Down on Sunday 17th April 2016 with their sister car (new addition to the team for this season) an EBC equipped Honda Civic Type R. With Yellowstuff brake pads, the Honda performed well on its first outing at this venue and the team have plans to develop this second car over the coming season.

The EBC Yellowstuff brake pads on the lightweight Honda were extremely effective with immense stopping power.

The Lewis Dean Motorsport Team will return to Gurston Down in May with the trusty EBC Honda Civic whilst the Subaru will be back on the hill in June once the engine problem is addressed.

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.
