Raymond Boyd has been in touch recently with an update on how he won the SMRC Scottish Classic Sports and Saloon series outright at Knockhill last year with EBC Bluestuff brakes installed in his 911 race car.

Raymond is using EBC Bluestuff brakes on his classic 911 race car as he finds the high friction NDX formula to provide the best balance for his specialist car.

 Here is his race report:

Here is an update on the brake pads you supplied me last year for my 911 race car that runs in the SMRC Scottish Classic Sports and Saloon series at Knockhill.

We actually won the class outright and finished 3rd overall last year on EBC Yellowstuff brake pads and could have done better if we didn’t miss 2 rounds which was a little disappointing personally.

However after your kind sponsor pad package we have now tried Orangestuff brake padsEBC Yellowstuff brake pads but we are really doing well with the Bluestuff as they seem to suit balance of car perfectly.

Not only do they give me great feel and out braking more “favoured” pads in motorsport they are actually a key part of my package which is leading the overall championship by 37 points and have a 100% win rate in class.

We have 2 more events, 4 races to go till end of season and we will be trying desperately to keep this momentum and hopefully realise my ambition to win this championship.

I have tried many different pads but the feel through the peddle in wet and dry races with reliability and longevity is excellent and I hope we can continue this relationship going forward.

I actually still have one set left to order and will do so this week as I want to ensure we have a new set of Blue’s for the next 2 races to help achieve my goal.

EBC Brakes have been a big contributor to our current position as tyres, brakes and suspension are the big three to success in my book and goes to show even an Old Bloke with some talent cane make a difference with correct package and components and having the ability to stop in many different occasions on track certainly inspires confidence.
