AP Racing to supply parts to two-thirds of the Rolex 24 At Daytona grid.
AP Racing, the world-renowned brake and clutch supplier, has announced its presence at the 62nd Rolex 24 At Daytona. Taking place at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida (27-28 January), the team will be supplying a range of brake, clutch and associated components to 39 of the 59 competitors across all four categories.
Carbon discs from the AP Racing range will be used by all teams in LMP2 and several GTP entries, while I-drive Iron discs will be supplied to GTD and GTD Pro teams. AP Racing will also provide front and rear calipers to cars in GTP (CP6177 and CP6187), as well as the GTD and GTD Pro grids (CP7269 and CP7480).
Alongside benefitting from some of the world’s most advanced braking technology, teams will also benefit from extensive on-track support. Indeed, throughout the weekend, AP Racing’s expert engineers will be on hand to support customers and optimise the use of its pioneering technologies.
David Hamblin, managing director at AP Racing, commented: “We have a longstanding association with the Daytona 24h and look forward to seeing our braking and clutch system technologies harnessed by the majority of the grid at this year’s event. Part of the triple crown of endurance racing, it’s fair to say that the race really does test the limits of motorsport engineering in hugely demanding conditions, so we’re looking forward to seeing our discs and calipers excel.
“Working with such a large percentage of the entrants is a testament to the trust that teams place in our technology, as well as our continuous pursuit of excellence – a commitment that really defines the brand.”
