For the serious fast road and track day enthusiasts who appreciate an excellent brake pad, we now have in stock Pagid RS29 pads for the following calipers:

AP (VXR) 6 Pot (used in 362mm Vectra VXR kit)
Alcon 4498 4 Pot Monoblock calipers (used in the Alcon Xtreme Brake Kits)
K Sport 8 Pot (356mm and 330mm kits)

These Pagid pads are also available from us for the AP 4 Pot 6600 caliper, and also the AP 4 Pot VXRacing 6600 caliper (343mm discs) which uses a slightly slimmer D50 pad.

From our own testing and from customer feedback, these Pagid pads are an excellent trackday brake pad and extremely well suit to that environment, that also works well for fast road use, benefiting from good feel even from lower temperatures.

RS29 is a direct development of RS19, with a very similar friction coefficient to RS19, improvements in initial bite offering quicker response and slightly more temperature stable at the upper levels of the temperature range. Developments in raw material selection and compounding have resulted in improvements also in pedal feel and feedback, helping with modulation particularly on lighter applications.

We are pleased to report a very successful opening round at Cadwell Park for the Courtenay Sport Racing backed DCE Motorsport entry in the 2013 Time Attack series, driven by Will Watson.

In somewhat ‘chilly’ but dry conditions, (the word Baltic was heard mentioned on more than one occasion) Will improved his times throughout the day, bettering them on every single occasion out on track.

In the end after posting the fastest time in the practice session at 1:47.733, Will bettered this time in the qualifying session with a time of 1.47.116 putting him second in the class and earning 40 championship points. In the Final Will went faster again posting a 1.45.357 to finish second in the Club Class adding a further 90 points to his total.

All in all the mechanics were untroubled during the day with little more to do than than routine checks to tyre pressures and brakes. The car, and driver both performed faultlessly. A massive congratulations to everyone concerned for a fantastic opener.

The Club Class Results can be seen below (Click to Enlarge):
