PAGID Racing and Mazda Motorsports Partnership
As a competition car, the production-based Toyota GR Yaris RZ provides an ideal field for further development of the high-quality PAGID Racing brake pads. Throughout the development stage of the new car, valuable data could be collected that were implemented in the optimization of the brake pads. In the Toyota Gazoo Racing Iberian Cup, an evolution of PAGID Racing’s High Performance brake pad RST 5 will be used.
This evolution of the proven RST 5 has been tailor-made for the high demands in rallying. Thanks to its optimized temperature management, it provides an ideal performance from low up to extremely high temperatures. For instance, it has an outstanding cold-start performance. Its ideal heat transfer guarantees that the generated heat remains in the brake pad and doesn’t transfer to the brake fluid, which is making the RST 5 highly resistant against fluid fading.
“We are delighted that we have been able to secure the new Toyota Gazoo Racing Iberian Cup as a partner, said Jürgen Voigt, Pagid Senior Sales Manager OE Motorsport. “We have been involved in the development of the new competition car and have acquired valuable insights from which both PAGID Racing and our partners and teams will benefit.
“The evolution of the RST 5 brake pad that will be used in this cup provides an optimal performance for the conditions in rallying. We are looking forward to a successful inaugural season and we wish good luck to all the participants.”
