AP Racing

AP Racing is the leading manufacturer of performance brake and clutch systems for road and race cars.

The core product range includes clutches, calipers, discs, pads, master cylinders, pedal boxes and air jacks, as well as road and competition brake systems for motorcycles.

The Company

AP Racing, the Coventry, UK-based company, has achieved more international sporting success than any of its rivals, establishing itself as a key supplier at all levels of international motorsport formulae, including single seat racing, rallying, sportscar racing, stock car racing and touring cars. In 2010 alone, AP Racing supplied either brakes, clutches or both to 30 champions across the entire spectrum of the motorsport world.

In 2008 AP Racing became one of only a small number of European automotive component manufacturers to achieve registration to the ISO/TS 16949 quality approval standard. This certification underlines AP Racing’s commitment to provide the highest quality products and services to meet the exacting requirements of their customers.

Motorsport

For over 40 years AP Racing has been at the forefront of the motorsport industry, creating winners on track.

Radi-CAL

In 2007 AP Racing introduced the Radi-CAL brake caliper range, a revolution in brake caliper technology which features a new design concept that improves efficiency, cooling and driver control.

This proven race winning technology is available for F3, NASCAR, GT1, LMP1, LMP2 and WTCC classes, with AP Racing continuing work to further develop Radi-CAL technology for additional racing series.

Formula One

AP Racing’s success has been underlined by the fact that every Formula One Championship since 1967 has been won using the company’s equipment. Since their first appearance in F1 at the Dutch Grand Prix in 1967, AP Racing has achieved 680wins with brakes, clutches or both.

Road Cars

All of the organisation’s products are developed in close co-operation with leading car manufacturers using state-of-the-art, three-dimensional solid modelling/design and Finite Element Analysis CAD facilities, and dynamometers that simulate true racing speeds. AP Racing also supplies leading performance car manufacturers with brake and clutch components as well as producing a comprehensive range of bolt on replacement performance brake kits.
