EBC’s track-only pad impresses the judges in the annual Fast Car Awards

EBC Brakes Racing’s formidable RP-1™ track and race pad compound has won the ‘Best Brake Hardware’ trophy during the 2019 Fast Car Awards.

The top spot was chosen by editorial staff and the publication’s readership alike, who were both impressed with the performance on offer from this relatively new product.

Check out the February 2020 issue of Fast Car magazine for the full award listings.

RP-1™ is an all-new track day and race-focused brake pad that sets a new high-water mark in EBC Brakes’ 35-year history of creating world-class braking components.

Developed from the ground-up by the ‘EBC Brakes Racing’ sub-division, RP-1™ is the result of the firm’s engineers being ‘let off the leash’ and assigned with the task of creating the highest-performing brake pad they physically could, with no expense spared.

The ensuing three years of intense R&D, thousands of hours of dyno testing and, of course, hundreds of laps of the UK’s most demanding race circuits in both track and race-focused cars have all resulted in a no-compromised, cutting-edge organic pad that offers extreme braking performance at a lower cost compared to other pads on the market.

Now readily available for a large number of factory sports car and aftermarket race caliper fitments, RP-1™ pads are already proving themselves across the globe in the form of not only race wins but also new lap records.
