We are very excited to announce our efforts this season, campaigning our new race car, based on 2009 Dodge Viper ACR, in a number of West Coast Club Endurance race events, culminating in the entry in 2016 25 Hours of Thunderhill in December.

We have partnered with RacingBrake to take our team to the next level of competition. Based out of Fullerton, California, RacingBrake has been providing quality brake components based on extensive experience for the automotive aftermarket for over two decades. Product lines range from OEM replacement components, to the most demanding racetrack-ready applications.
Having previously worked with Racing Brake engineers on Viper product development and testing and receiving excellent results, we look forward to our joint development projects in 2016. Brakes are one of the most critical components in long range endurance racing, and one of the areas where balance between reliability, performance, and ease of service (or repairs) can become a key component in the race strategy.  

As our first event of the year, Momentary Racing, supported by Racing Brake, is entering the “6 Hours on The Ridge” endurance race sanctioned by the International Drivers Club. The race will take place on April 17, at the Ridge Motorsports Park (Shelton, WA), as our first event with the new car.  

Keith Novak will join Igor Levine in co-driving the #11 Dodge Viper ACR.

Follow us on Facebook, or look for updates from our team here, on road racing forums.

We are looking forward to 2016 season!

Momentary Racing

Thanks. We have also sponsored another BMW racing team SCTS Racing. Fully equipped with RB 4pot and 2 pot caliper brake kits. The rotor lasts two seasons and just got replaced last week. And since there was a poll in rennlist for aftermarket rotors, so I post the result with pictures (re-posted below).

 

How are your aftermarket track rotors doing? (racing brake, AP racing, Girodisc)

The hardware looks like new without any sign of stress or dislocation.

We only present the facts and will let the driver and team manager comment about the brake.

Scott - Team Manager's comment:

Hi All -

I own the 135i race car that the rotors pictured above came off of. Those rotors were on the car for 2 race seasons and we beat the crap out of them. We even had the studs break with wheels coming off and the car landing on them. No hardware failure of any type. We've had Stoptech attachment hardware break on us before, but these rotors held up to everything we could throw at them.
