For over 40 years, AP Racing has had one aim - to create winners on the race track.The world of motorsport has changed out of all recognition since those early days and AP Racing have spearheaded every major development in brake and clutch technology.From iron brakes to today's carbon/carbon. From large production based clutches to compact Ø97mm multi-disc units that transmit close to 1000 bhp. AP Racing shows the way.
Auto UnionIn Grand Prix Racing our success started with the incredible Auto Unions and has continued uninterrupted ever since to the championship winning Williams, McLarens, Renaults, and Ferraris. At the end of the 2009 season AP Racing had notched up an incredible 648th GP wins for cars using its Brakes and/or Clutches and are confident of increasing this tally in 2010. The UK company has racked up that amazing tally in just 39 years. The very first car to win a grand prix with AP Racing's brakes was the Ferrari 312B driven by Mario Andretti in the South African GP at Kyalami back in March 1971. It was, remarkably, Andretti's first competitive outing for Ferrari. The technical comparisons between the brakes used for the landmark occasions make for interesting reading. Where the caliper weighed 3.6 kg in 1971, it tipped the scales in Bahrain at 1.6 kg. The disc itself weighed 4 kg in 1971 but now weighs just 1.75 kg!
F1 race startAP Racing has an outstanding record in F1 - 648 Grand Prix wins starting at the Dutch GP in 1967 have been won with cars that used the British company's brakes, clutches, or both. Over that period, engine power outputs have nearly doubled but our clutches have reduced in size and weight by a remarkable 113mm and 3.3kg. With over 228 brake winners AP Racing shows the way.
