WATCH: PERKINS EXPLAINS BATHURST-WINNING BRAKE CALIPER

THE latest episode on the Perkins Engineering YouTube channel covers one of history’s most famous Bathurst-winning innovations.

Larry Perkins details the in-house designed brake caliper that allowed his Castrol Commodore to complete the 1995 Bathurst 1000 without a pad change.

Time saved in the pits proved critical in Perkins and co-driver Russell Ingall’s stunning come-from-behind victory in that year’s race.

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