Berk Technology captured yet another win for Performance Friction
Brake Kits with their victory in the time-attack portion of the EuroTuner Grand Prix. Each year EuroTuner Magazine puts on a 3-day battle and invites the top US tuning shops to compete. The event includes drag racing, dyno testing, and time attack racing.
When it came to the time attack battle, the brake heavy course was perfectly suited for the Performance Friction
brake package. Berk Technology ran the fastest lap and gave credit to their Performance Friction
Brake Kit. Berk Technology and other top time attack teams select Performance Friction
Brake Kits because they are a stiffer, more responsive, and quicker modulating. This means better drivability, handling and quicker lap times.
At ETGP, Berk Technology driver Carl Rydquist put his years of experience in European GT racing to good use as he piloted the BMW to a dominant win in the time attack competition and a 3rd place overall. "Our team executed our mission beautifully. We approached the race with cautious optimism knowing that we had several other drivers from ALMS and Grand-Am with purpose built racecars in tow. It was a great feeling when we received our trophy for winning the time attack event. Our 3rd place overall finish at ETGP was icing on the cake." said Carl Rydquist, Driver, Berk Technology.
The event is the cover story for the February issue of EuroTuner Magazine and is available at newsstands nationwide.
