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.
