Got Brakes?

4 Oct

Ferodo is a UK based company that was founded in 1897, and was the world’s first manufacturer of friction based products. They offer a series of pads for street, track, auto-x use. From the venerable DS2500 clubsport pad, to the more track oriented DS3000, we can supply you with the pads you need, at a great price. Ferodo is one of the few brands to also offer pads for stock and aftermarket calipers. We know that sometimes it can be tough finding a suitable pad worthy of buying for your afternmarket kit. So, whether your Z or G has base model brakes, or factory Brembo calipers, or you’ve got an aftermarket kit from Brembo, AP Racing, Endless, Wilwood or others, we can help! Got a motorcycle? Let us know!

One More Day at the Spa

26 Aug

Figured you guys would like this too.

From my own personal favorite era of road racing – the Group C era. One of these days I’ll do a compilation outlining some of the technology used in this phase of motorsport. It was essentially where modern technology that we would recognize today converged with the wild west mentality of motor racing in the 50’s and 60’s. The cars were insanely powerful (800+hp), extremely lightweight (1760 lbs minimum weight)blazingly fast (240+ mph), and threading the needle between sane and safe.

A Lifetime in 24 Hours

25 Jun

It’s that time of the year again! Fresh off the heels of the 24 hour race at LeMans, it’s once again time for the 24 Hour Endurance Race at the world famous Nurburgring. We all know how tiring driving can sometimes be, even if we’re in the car for an hour or two. Imagine driving flat out, through any weather condition, throughout a challenging course in the middle of the German forest, with a field full of fellow nutcases doin the same. This is what the 24 Hours of Nurburgring is. The best drivers in the world, in some of the best sports and GT cars, engaged in the in the ultimate dance between man and machine.

They offer a TON of products, ranging from seats, to steering wheels and shift knobs, to racing helmets, racing suits, and more

OMP was established in Genoa (Italy) in 1973 by brothers Piergiorgio, Roberto and Claudio Percivale, with the initial production of rollbars for competition cars.

Over the years, OMP implements new specializations, becoming a protagonist on a national level in the following sectors: Racing (safety components for competition cars and drivers), Karting (accessories and components for Kart competitions) and Tuning (special components for road cars). OMP became well-known among the professionals and the amateurs of this sector because it provided clothes for drivers such as Ayrton Senna and Nigel Mansell in Formula 1 and Tommi Makinen and Carlos Sainz in the rally worldwide championship. Its popularity was definitively confirmed in 1996, when Michael Schumacher chose OMP as his personal “tailor” for 11 years of victories with Ferrari.

The high quality standards (UNI EN ISO 9001/2000 certification) and the global offer are our strength points. All our products are designed and tested in order to obtain the maximum level of safety and are compliant with the strict international homologation standards for car competitions.
