Porsche and BMW Score Milestone Victories in Pirelli WC with PFC

(CLOVER, SC) March 8, 2016 – In this year’s Pirelli World Challenge, goals have been achieved and milestones have been made. The all new BMW M235i scored its first win in the United States, as well as Porsche’s 991 GT3R claimed its first pole position and first official win in only its second race of 2016. Both of the highly renowned sportscars are equipped with PFC Brakes.  

Patrick Long, driver of the Porsche 991 GT3R in the Pirelli World Challenge GT class, claimed the GT3R’s very first official victory for the new racing machine. Long had a hand in the development of the GT3R, and is a previous 2011 PWC GT champion.

“This week is a testament to Porsche,” said Long. “They’ve been at this a long time. Delivering turnkey race ready cars where your confidence is sky high as a driver and as a team and customer, you know that there’s no need for the exercise of pulling the car apart and putting it together.”

The race was a hard fi ght for Long from the very beginning.  Out of Turn 1, the sixth qualifier Bryan Heitkotter in his XD/Nissan GT Academy Nissan GTR, went on the outside of pole sitter Long to take the lead--starting the pack out with a speedy pace. Driver Long trailed Heitkotter closely until the last 10 minutes of the 50-minute race.

“He ran clean and hard,” said Long, “and I think I did too, and I really appreciate racing with people like that.”

Going up against some of the top GT3 race teams in the world, this victory for Porsche and for Long is a huge milestone for everyone involved with Porsche, the PWC team, and PFC Brakes.

“These guys never, ever drop their head,” said Long. “They’ve been working hard over at Effort, and it’s a proud moment to carry the cake across the line, but it’s a real team effort that gets us here.”

In the TC series, Toby Grahovec scored a monumental win for Classic BMW Motorsports with the newly introduced BMW M235i. This new series is one of the few trending cars that are race-ready straight from the manufacturer. Through testing data and previous BMW runs at the Nurburgin 24 Hours, the car was as well prepared as possible to hit the track right out of the race trailer, with the inclusion of PFC ZeroDrag™ calipers, CarbonMetallic© pads and ZeroFailures™ discs. BMW USA is bringing in a limited amount of these winning race cars to the market equipped with PFC Brakes’ full package.

“It’s such a great car to drive,” said Grahovec. “I’m very excited about running this car for the rest of the season.”

PFC Brakes takes pride in every product that goes out the door. Everything is manufactured in the USA, and PFC is the only chassis supplier to Porsche Motorsports in North America. Many of the drivers and teams in the Pirelli World Challenge trust PFC Brakes to make them quicker and get into victory lane. That’s why PFC Brakes has More Championships than any Other™. 

Ferguson and Bohn Claim VICTORY with PFC!


Ferguson and the No.22 Longhorn Chassis Dirt Late Model car dominated Cherokee Speedway this past weekend by winning the pole position, leading all 50 laps, and driving into victory lane gaining a $5,022 win. Ferguson also set the fastest time in qualifying.

"We really worked hard tonight," said Ferguson. "My dad, my brother, and the crew made all the right calls on the set-up."

Staying strong during three different race restarts, Ferguson was able to stay in front of driver Tim Allen, who dove to the outside to try and take the first place position.

Ferguson's race car was fully equipped with PFC's NEW ZR24 Dirt Late Model package that offers up to 7 lbs. per corner weight savings, has an internal cross over tube, and has an aluminum monobloc design for a lighter, quicker car.


The famous Bowman Gray Stadium was invaded by the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified series this past weekend, with defending Bowman Gray points champion, Danny Bohn, scoring yet another victory at this track.

Currently, he has now won four of the last six races that he's competed in, and has only competed in a total of eight races this season.

"I think that's four wins in five races," said Bohn. "To win at Bowman Gray again is pretty awesome."

The 199-lap race involved 11 cautions--including the late 190th lap which challenged drivers to get up front during the restart. Bohn fought and held onto the first place position and rode into Victory Lane for yet another Bowman victory

Ganassi WINS 12 Hours of Sebring with Full PFC Carbon Brake Package

(CLOVER, SC) March 17, 2014 – The No. 01 Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates team and PFC Brakes made sportscar history this past weekend with a WIN at the 62nd 12 Hours of Sebring—the oldest sportscar race in the United States. Ganassi’s Ford EcoBoost-Riley Daytona Prototype was equipped with PFC’s Monobloc calipers and PFC’s continuous wound carbon brake discs and pads—100% PFC designed and manufactured, incorporating new technologies unique to the 64 year history of this icon of endurance races. 

                                   

The Ganassi team is the only team in racing to have won the Indianapolis 500, the Daytona 500, Brickyard 400, the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and now the 12 Hours of Sebring. The team also switched to the Ford EcoBoost DP motor during the offseason—giving Ford their first overall Sebring win in 45 years. The DP was driven by Scott Pruett, Memo Rojas, and Marino Franchitti who took the checkered flag after 12 hours of racing. 

PFC Brakes Patented Continuous Fiber Carbon-Carbon Disc and pads along with ZERODRAG™ calipers gave the Ganassi team the braking advantage with the best possible package on the track. The technology behind the Carbon-Carbon design is world-class—made from a continuous three-dimensionally wound high-density super modulus carbon fiber. The disc provides better higher burst strength, better thermal conductivity and cooling properties, better friction stability, and better cold friction for restarts without incident. 

Before this year the Grand-Am and the American Le Mans series merged under NASCAR’s IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship—putting the Ganassi team at the Sebring race for the very first time in their 25-year history. 

“We brought a lot of upgrades here to Sebring,” said Pruett, “and the hard work we put in since January really paid off.” 

With over 30 lead changes throughout the race, the 62nd year of the 12 Hours of Sebring proved to be one of the most competitive and demanding. With 20 minutes left in the race, a caution flag brought the field together—giving another challenge to the Ganassi team. With their Ford DP and PFC Brakes package, Franchitti had a 4.682 second lead victory across the finish line. 

PFC’s full carbon-carbon disc brake package featuring ZERODRAG™ calipers are once again proven to be able to handle the most intensive endurance tracks for the best racing teams in the world. PFC lives by their standards and their customers—NO COMPROMISES™.

5X Rolex 24HR Winners DP Ganassi Team use Full PFC Carbon Brake Package

January 24, 2014 – (Clover, SC) 5X Winners of the Rolex 24HR at Daytona DP Ganassi Race Team is using the PFC Brakes Full Carbon-Carbon Brake Package (calipers, pads, discs). Starting on January 25th, 2014, the 24HR Rolex Endurance Race is one of the largest events to kick-off the race year.


The PFC Patented Continuous Fiber Carbon-Carbon Disc is specially made by taking a continuous fibre that is wound into the disc shape. This allows for the maximum thermal conductivity while effectively using the disc as a radiator so that the heat is released from the system. This makes the disc extremely strong and higher structural integrity than discs made by other methods. This disc, combined with the PFC Brakes ZERODRAG™ calipers, provides unbeatable technology and braking power.

PFC Brakes’ CarbonMetallic® pads win more championships and are used by more professional racers than all other pads combined. The secret is in the molecular structure, the interaction of the physical matrix, and the unique process required to produce CarbonMetallic®. The PFC pad compound provides higher lap times, more car control, and faster transition times.

For a long endurance race such as the 24HR at Daytona, PFC Brakes technology exceeds all expectations. The Championship Winning DP Ganassi Race Team continues to choose PFC Brakes year after year—trusting the PFC package to give them the best braking performance possible from start to finish.

Renault Sport Technologies selects PFC Brakes for Clio R.S. R3T Rally Car

Renault Sport Technologies selects PFC Brakes for Clio R.S. R3T rally car

PFC Brakes develops high performance brake system that meets FIA technical and cost guidelines for R3T Clio R.S. rally car.

Reinforcing its position as a leader in the design and manufacture of competition brake systems, PFC Brakes has been chosen as official brake supplier to Renault Sport Technologies for its new Clio R.S. R3T rally car.  Complying with FIA R3 regulations, PFC Brakes’ pads, discs and calipers incorporate a number of key innovations, such as piston cap insulators to deliver exceptional performance on tarmac and gravel whilst still achieving the stringent cost and technical requirements set for the category.


With the Clio R.S. 200 EDC’s turbocharged 1618cc engine generating more power than the existing R3 car, PFC Brakes’ engineers set out to develop a durable brake system to withstand the higher loads and temperatures generated. Innovations, typically found in the highest levels of motorsport were incorporated to deliver the high performance specified.  Examples include piston cap insulators that reduce temperature transfer to the brake fluid by as much as 55°C thus minimising risk of boiling fluid.  Larger and wider front discs are specified for tarmac to improve heat dissipation, even under increased loads such as those experienced on long tarmac stages.


PFC Brakes’ engineers specified a derivative of its proven ZR34 caliper; the forged monoblock aluminium caliper offering the best blend of weight and stiffness. Clever design also enabled PFC Brakes to offer a brake pad with a larger radial depth, providing a larger contact area to deliver better stopping power than the standard size typically used by competitors.

Testing across a variety of surfaces led PFC’s engineers to determine that due to the wide operating window of its pads, just two PFC compounds can satisfy the demands of drivers of all abilities on all surfaces. Both the chosen compounds deliver improved bite, modulation and release characteristics with the one of the versions offering particular resistance to wheel locking. To enable drivers to use the brakes right from the start of a stage, PFC specified brake pads designed to work at low temperatures and the unique metallic matrix construction ensures consistency for the duration of a stage, further inspiring driver confidence.

The announcement to supply Renault Sport Technologies follows PFC Brakes' selection as official brake partner to Porsche for its Supercup chassis earlier this year. "We are delighted to be nominated by Renault Sport Technologies for such an important car," says PFC Brakes Europe's managing director Peter Babbage. "Together with Renault Sport Technologies, PFC Brakes has created a competitive and affordable rally brake package ideally suited to competitors in the R3 category that will inspire confidence, whatever the surface."

Pollard Takes the Pole at New Smyrna Governor's Cup, Finishing 5th with PFC Brakes

( CLOVER, SC) October 26, 2013 – Bubba Pollard took the pole ahead of 32 other Super Late Models at the New Smyrna Governor’s Cup 200 race, and finished in 5th with PFC Brakes full brake package. The Lighter, Stiffer, Cooler, and Quicker PFC package includes the 34 caliper, 299 disc, and PFC friction.

Bubba Pollard has qualified on the pole in every race he has entered since installing PFC Brakes 34 calipers—including every race at Pensacola this year. “The stuff we’ve been working on works on tracks like here and Pensacola,” said Pollard.

Caliper temps on the PFC calipers were 30 to 40 degrees cooler on a 10-lap run. Pollard claims that the New Smyrna track—a short 0.48 mile asphalt speedway—was one of the most brake demanding tracks of the year, but was able to out-brake anyone throughout the duration of the race. Drivers in the race sporting the PFC 34 package showed zero disc glow, while other leaders were forced to conserve brakes due to the excessive temperatures built during the event.

The 48th New Smyrna Governor’s Cup involved 33 Super Late Model Driver’s from all over the country. The 200 lap race was a challenge to all the racers, with several different lead changes and caution laps—starting early on in lap 16. With a rough hit by Travis Cope in lap 92, another caution came out stirring up the track leaders. At the halfway mark, lap 100, Pollard was back in the 15th position while battling engine cooling issues. Through heavy traffic and fighting with drivers such as Davis and Labbe, Pollard used his driving skills and PFC 34 brake package to get into the 5th position as he crossed the finish line.

During qualifying, Grissom reached 100.485 miles per hour on the short .455 mile track, setting a new personal record at the speedway in Asheboro, North Carolina.

 

Throughout the race, Grissom’s #31 car stayed out front. A brutal crash involving Karl Weber occurred on lap 78 for the second caution of the night. Measmer in the #51 car spun out introducing the third caution of the night.

 

During the restart on lap 84, Grissom and Gentry moved into the top two spots, passing Brandon Ward who had lead the first length of the race. Jay Fogleman in the #2 car, also equipped with a full PFC brake package, stole the second place position from Gentry, finishing right behind Grissom through the checkered flag.

 

The PFC ZR34 Full Brake Package is trusted by the top drivers in the series with Zero Drag™ calipers that make the car quicker. Short track racing and the harsh braking environment puts driver’s braking systems to the test—with PFC Brakes coming out in the lead.
