VIDEO: V8 SUPERCAR REAR BRAKE EVOLUTION

THE latest episode on the Perkins Engineering YouTube channel charts the evolution of rear brake calipers in the V8 Supercar category since 1993.

In the video Jack Perkins gives a look at the different caliper designs utilising three generations of cars in the Perkins Engineering workshop.

Perkins begins by explaining that the Harrop-made caliper on the 1993 Castrol Commodore came directly from AUSCAR racing.

A reminder, too: the National Motor Racing Museum holds the last remaining stock of our recently released book, Perkins Engineering: The Cars, 1986-2008.
