 Porsche 911 Wins SMRC Championship 2016 with EBC race brake pads

Raymond Boyd has done it yet again and has won the SMRC Scottish Classics and Saloons Series Championship using EBC race brake pads.  As in previous years, Raymond has kept with his winning formula and has installed EBC Yellowstuff and Bluestuff race pads on his Porsche 911. These race formulated professional brake pads give high friction performance and are the driver’s perfect choice for the track.

Here’s Raymond’s season round up:

I thought it was about time I updated you to the results at the end of the 2016 season for my Porsche 911 running EBC sponsored Yellowstuff racing brake padsBluestuff NDX brake pads and brake fluid in the SMRC Scottish Classics and Saloons.

With the 2nd October finale looming, I had a 100% class win record and was leading the championship overall by three points and was wholly focused on ensuring car reliability to maintain or grow this position to the end of the season. The October meeting was low in attendance but the weather was kind and the 911 had been fully prepped and new Bluestuff NDX brake pads and brake fluid added with new tyres to ensure the best result  possible.

Well you could not have wished for the final outcome… 2 x 1st in class wins and driver of the day to clinch the Championship for the 2nd time in 3 years by 21pts. To say I was pleased was an understatement. The car performed flawlessly all season and the brakes were outstanding. In fact the brakes all season have again been immense and having the sponsorship and varied range of pads to choose from 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 for the second time with your fine products and I am looking forward to next year where we are planning some exciting upgrades to attempt to win back to back championships in the SMRC Classic Championship.

Hopefully we can continue this very successful relationship that will assist in a very successful season with a new revamped Porsche 911 performance package that will require the best EBC can provide.

Thanks and Regards Team EBC

Raymond Boyd

EBC Ultimax Slotted USR Brake Rotors

EBC Ultimax Slotted USR Brake Rotors are manufactured using premium disc blanks. These rotors benefit from quiet running which is all down to the narrower multi-slot design and the progressive angle at which the slots are machined. This has the benefit of removing dirt, gas, water and debris and having the advantage of parallel pad wear.

EBC GD Series Brake Rotors

EBC GD Series brake disc rotors are now available in a “thermic black” 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.
