AP Racing (Booth 5034) is debuting no fewer than five new products at this year’s PMW Expo in Cologne, Germany. These include new forged six-piston front CP7269 and four-piston rear CP7480 calipers designed for GT3 and GT4 applications. They are lighter and stiffer than previous incarnations and are manufactured using near-net forgings. The calipers are available to order now for delivery in March 2020.
A new floor-mounted pull-type sliding pedal box designed to suit FIA fixed-seat regulations is also on display for the first time, featuring many new design features and improvements over the company’s previous CP5538 pedal box. Three- and two-pedal (brake and clutch) versions are available.
The company’s brand-new CP8732 clutch assembly (pictured) offers a patented concentric dual-banded cover feature. Dual-band clutches benefit from the same optimized software use in Radi-CAL brake technology, offering a significant reduction in weight and increased stiffness compared with conventional clutch assemblies.
Finally, the company is also showing a new interlocking disc and bell mounting system for GT3/GT4 brake discs, which provides increased drive lug strength and constant float under all conditions. Analysis has shown a 31% reduction in stress compared with conventional systems.
“This is their first public airing, here at the show,” confirmed Joe Bennett, marketing and product group engineer, AP Racing. “We’ve had lots of interest and people coming along to see them. The expo is ideal for bringing new products to show to existing and potential new customers.”
