We love receiving mail from our customers and occasionally like to share them with you. We just got this note from John M. Buttermore of Nearbrook Motorsports. John is running a Corvette in SCCA T1, and taking home a lot of hardware. This update from John talks about his experience at Road America during the June Sprints. It's a great testimonial from a great competitor. Congratulations John and best of luck the rest of the season.
Last weekend I went to Road America for the June Sprints. I ran on the same brakes (rotors and pads) that I ran on for a full race distance at Mid-Ohio (with 10 of the 19 laps under the track record no less!). Ran an 8 lap practice, and 2 qualifying sessions at Road America without needing an additional rotor change. 8 laps doesn't sound like a lot, but at Road America that is a ton of practice laps.
The car was fastest in all sessions and we won from the pole leading every lap, it was a very wet track so the brakes didn't really get worked as hard as they normally would. But there is not a more difficult test for brakes than Road America and for the first time I can go into every braking zone with confidence that I will be getting consistent stopping power. I couldn't be any more pleased with how these brakes have worked for me all year.
