Over the past few weeks, we’ve witnessed the final rounds of several fiercely-fought motorcycle race series in the UK – a number of which feature EBC-equipped riders within their grids.
Below is a final summary of the 2020 season from the last batch of EBC-equipped riders across the UK.
Michael Tustin – Jones Dorling Racing
2020 R&G Shield Winner – Ducati TriOptions Championship
“I have used EBC Brakes’ pads and discs for four years in the Ducati TriOptions Championship on my 959 Panigale.
“Winning the 2020 R&G Ducati Shield has been a particular highlight this season, while also being a consistent top-10 finisher overall.
“For me, it’s a no-brainer; the best quality and longevity I’ve experienced, and above that, the product support from EBC is second-to-none.”
Kade and Luke Verwey – Team XG
BSB Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship
“Team XG Racing would like to thank EBC Brakes for the support over the past season whilst competing in the Superstock 600 Championship at BSB.
“High-performance brakes are a critical part of any race bike and it’s essential to have them right to achieve success. EBC Brakes gives us a competitive edge when it comes to braking in such a demanding application. The brake discs and pads are extremely good quality and work very well in all conditions.
“We have been using EBC for many years and will continue to do so. The company’s customer service and technical support are second to none, highly recommended!”
Ben Luxton, Dan Brooks and Joe Talbot – JR Performance
Pirelli National Superstock 600
“First of all, I would like to say a massive thank you to EBC Brakes for all the excellent service and support.
“Working with EBC in 2020 was a very good experience! To have Gareth from the company’s knowledge and experience to use the best products on our bikes this year has helped in many ways.
“I believe running with the EBC discs and GPFAX pads helped the riders achieve their goals out on track. It’s been awesome to win our first championship this season together and hope there’s many more.”
– Team Principle, Joe Richardson
Dean Hipwell – CDH Racing
BSB Superstock 1000/Superbike 1000
“We as a team have been using EBC’s brake pads in Superstock and Superbike classes on a BMW S1000RR and a full Superbike Kawasaki ZX10RR.
“We have been impressed with the consistency of how the pads react in both cold weather and then on a hot summer’s day (not enough of them in England!). The initial ‘bite’ of the pad is great which gives good confidence on the brakes and performs constantly through practice sessions and racers.
“I would happily (and constantly do) recommend EBC Brakes to anybody, both at the British Superbike events or at track days and test events.”
Ewan Potter and David Shoubridge – AH Performance
Ducati TriOptions Championship
“Both Riders used EBC Brakes products in the Ducati TriOptions Championship during the 2020 season, which helped them get 4th in the R&G Shield (Ewan) and 3rd in the championship overall (David).
“They were very impressed with the performance of the GPFAX pads in both wet and dry conditions, with both riders saying there was no fade and they were able to trail the brakes further into the corner compared to other brands.
“The durability of the pad is second to none also. We certainly won’t be looking at another brand in 2021 and want to continue using EBC!”
