Maximum brake performance for UTV racing10. December 2019 -
PAGID Racing developed new racing brake pads for UTV racing, which is enjoying growing popularity worldwide. PAGID Racing customers already celebrated successes with the new products in the UTV Production 1000 Championship in the United States.
The UTV race car concept is a market with an exponential increase in popularity. It consists of a very light race car with a strong power to weight ratio.
There is a wide variety of load conditions for the brake system of an UTV which must be taken into account when developing new brake pads. For shorter event formats like in the United States and in Europe, the brake system undergoes a high thermal load and modulation is crucial. For this first type of application, a specific brake pad compound on the OE brake system is a significant step forward in terms of performance. However, for an event like Dakar Rally, a strong cold initial bite is an important requirement, while the extra brake load due to the larger fuel tank of more than 120 l brings the OE brake system to its limits. For this second type of application, it is necessary to develop a compound fitting into an upgrade brake system.
Ian Berwick, Application Engineer at PAGID Racing: “With the broad range of operating temperature typical of the UTV racing market, selecting the optimal compound was a challenge. Low temperatures at the start of the event and the highest temps at some of the more challenging tracks meant we needed something that could work effectively in all conditions.”
Victory for Robert Stout in the UTV Production 1000 Championship
Successful with PAGID Racing brake performance: Robert Stout won the 2019 UTV Production 1000 Championship in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (USA). The #915 Magic Dry Absorbent was racing this season for the first time on new PAGID Racing brake pads specifically developed for this kind of application and demonstrated the potential with the Yawpower Suspension developed by Paul Yaw.
