Mintex Racing Brakes Chosen as Friction Material for 2019 Championship Races

18th December 2018 – Renowned brake brand, Mintex Racing, has been selected to provide the brake pads for all vehicles taking part in three upcoming championship circuit races.

Every car in The EnduroKA Championship, Focus Cup and RX8 Trophy circuit races will run Mintex’s high performance friction material, which has an established reputation of providing a winning formula for racing since the 1920s.

The EnduroKA Championship, run by Motorsport Vision Racing, will utilise Mintex’s revolutionary M1144 compound. This is a medium-torque material with excellent low-temperature qualities, making it ideal for high performance racing.
