Porsche 911 wins 2014 SMRC Championship with EBC Race Pads
Raymond Boyd has once again won the Championship of the SMRC Scottish Classics and Saloons series using EBC race pads. Raymond has installed on his Porsche 911 – EBC Yellowstuff and Bluestuff race pads. Both these sets of brake pads benefit from ultra high friction, an all important factor during any type of racing. The races took place at Knockhill in September and October 2014.
Here is Raymonds race report:
I thought it was about time I updated you to the results at the end of the season for my Porsche 911 running EBC Sponsored Yellowstuff and Bluestuff brake pads in the SMRC Scottish Classics and Saloons.
With 2 meetings to go to the September and October finale, I had a 100% class win record and was leading the championship overall by 46 Pts and was wholly focussed on maintaining this position to end of the season.
At the September meeting my long running adversary and fellow 911 driver Stan Barnard appeared in his 911 with a now upgraded engine and we had a real fight in race one which resulted in my first loss of the season but a good 20 pts, second in class result and forth overall. The second race I was back to form and we took the class win and 3rd overall.
This resulted in my 100% class win record now being unachievable but all focus now went to the finale meeting in October 14 and the championship.
The October meeting was low in attendance but the weather was kind and the 911 had been fully prepped and new Bluestuff brake pads added with new tyres to ensure the best result possible.
Well you could not have wished for the final outcome… 2nd qualifying, I won the 1st race by 11secs outright, fastest lap, class and championship win with 2nd position in the 2nd race, 1st in class and driver of the day.
The car performed flawlessly that day and the brakes were outstanding. In fact the brakes all season have been immense and having the sponsorship and varied range of pads has allowed me to change braking depending on weather conditions etc and this has been a major learn for me during this season which I could not have done without EBC continued support.
So I am now Scottish Champion with your fine products and I am looking forward to next year where we are building a new and rare car to compete and challenge again for the SMRC Classic Championship in a new class for under 15OOCC in a very rare 1973 Datsun 1200 coupe.
The SMRC Scottish Classics have an away round this year and I have been invited to the Donnington Historic during the weekend July 3,4,5th and it would be great to hopefully meet some of the EBC team there.
