NEW Season, NEW Goals!
The racing season is back in our hearts with the main championships starting in these weeks!
The Ferodo Racing team is already at full speed having been involved in testing throughout winter, with more to come in the forthcoming months. This is an important time to work with our partners to establish the best brake set-ups for the coming season. The analysis and data collected during the testing is invaluable as it helps our R&D team to implement improvements to the products that can make the difference on the track, where every tenth of a second counts.
At the beginning of the year, we tested our latest brake pad compounds for performance and durability on some of the most prestigious circuits, such as Dubai (24h race, 4h Asian le Mans Series), Abu Dhabi (6h), Daytona (USA, 24h), passing through Paul Richard, Monza and Barcelona, just to name a few.
"One important development from this winter’s testing is a new compound specifically engineered for the rear axle of GT cars." says Sergio Bonfanti, General Manager Ferodo Racing & Motorcycle division. "It has a friction level and torque shape that make it compatible with ABS and it has wear characteristics that will make it a key player during the 2023 racing season. TL163 is the name of this new compound."
We couldn’t be prouder to be onboard with the most iconic motorsport brands by braking their cars in the most important championships such as: ADAC GT Masters, DTM, World Challenge Europe, VLN, GTOPEN, GT4 European Series, FFSA, Italian GT Championship, Le Mans Cup & Series, IMSA, TCR.
The racing season sees us involved also on the two-wheels side, as technical partner of Pata Yamaha Prometeon in the WorldSBK and onboard with various teams competing in MX / Enduro championships. Track, mud, or road, everything is covered with Ferodo motorcycle products.
Finally, the bicycle business that we recently launched is connecting us with enthusiasts and professionals every week. E-Bike, road, MTB, down-hill racing, we have a solution for every kind of rider!
There’s no time to get bored for Ferodo Racing, and we are proud to take you with us around the world!
