Hope Racing proudly uses the firm’s VR discs and Double-H pads in the Super Street Bike class
EBC Brakes has recently signed Mark Hope of Hope Racing to be an EBC ambassador on his Super Street Bike Hayabusa drag bike, which is currently running nearly 700bhp and passing the quarter-mile gantry under eight seconds at over 200mph.
The Super Street Bike class consists of highly modified vehicles, which feature a purpose-built tube chassis and a lightweight, aerodynamically enhanced replica of original bodywork. The class features a wide variety of makes, models, and engines, including V-Twin entries and inline four-cylinder-equipped models with turbochargers and superchargers adding to the overall power.
During the Summer Nationals event recently, the EBC Brakes UK team visited Santa Pod Raceway to meet Mark, taking with them a support pack including new VR rotors and EBC Double H pads.
Mark has been using EBC Brakes on the Super Street Bike Hayabusa for several years now and has always trusted them to stop him from over a quarter of the speed of sound!
It’s worth considering that, at the start line, the brakes are stone cold. The bike is then accelerated to over 200mph in under eight seconds before the brakes are squeezed hard to stop Mark at the top end of the track, meaning they need to be incredibly reliable and fast-acting to be up to the job.
