Well finally got to use the Bremtek Racing Calipers properly on my first trackday at the historic Goodwood circuit in West Sussex, UK this holiday weekend.



Amazingly after a few laps the Bremtek calipers stopped rattling and then transformed from the wooden and unresponsive feel they have on the road to what I can only describe as a well balanced, sensitive and very powerful braking system on the track.

Unfortunately the rattling still drove me mad on the way home and despite their power (when warm) they really are unsuited to our great British (potholed) roads, so regretfully the newly refurbished 930 calipers will (still) be replacing them later this week
