Carbon Brake Discs & Pads

AP Racing has more than 30 years of experience with Carbon/Carbon brakes in F1 and Sportscars racing.
We recommend and supply a number of manufacturers materials which we consider to offer the best performance & braking characteristics together with low wear of any material currently available.
Carbon/carbon is expensive bit if managed correctly, mainly a question of temperature control, then wear rates and hence running costs can be surprisingly low.
The AP Racing range of Carbon discs and pads are available in a number of sizes, thickness and compounds.

Part Numbers:-

AP Racing offer several different Carbon materials for different applications and operating conditions. The choice of the best material for given application is complex. Please contact AP Racing Technical Section ( or Peter Harris directly.
