3 races 3 wins for Joe Burns using EBC super grippy racing brake pads

Long term EBC sponsored rider Joe Burns has had a stunning start to his 2014 season when he accomplished 3 wins in 3 races using EBC super grippy GPFAX racing brake pads.

Joe Burns and his team had the opportunity the other weekend at Croft to race in the North East Motorcycle Racing Club event. Riding his development British Superbike machine equipped with EBC GPFAX super grippy racing brake pads and stainless steel MD brake disc rotors, Joe had a soggy start when heavy rain hampered the Friday practise ending in Joe aquaplaning and coming off his bike at one stage. Luckily there was no damage done to Joe or the bike apart from a few scratches here and there.

During Saturdays racing Joe experienced further hitches when he had huge problems with his gearbox that actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise allowing it to be repaired, so as to prevent further crashes in future important Championship races.

On the Sunday Joe had his best day by far when he won all three of his races with an easy 7 seconds or more. Along with this he achieved three fastest laps too! Joe will be appearing next in the 1st round of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship race over Easter weekend at Brands Hatch.

GPFAX sintered race only brake pads

The new GPFAX Formula Sintered Race pads are a direct replacement of the GPFA series. This new formula is even more higher in friction and created specifically to be used only on asphalt surfaces such as those found in race track conditions. Because of the super performance that they provide these brake pads are a growing favourite choice by superbike racers.

Another benefit of the new GPFAX sintered material is that it now has even better heat cycling ability allowing the brake pads to be raced, cooled then raced again.
