From Truck to Track
Roadlink is proud to announce that we are supporting British Truck Racing Driver Stephen Powell and his team over the 2017 season
With minimum truck weights of 5500kg and racing speeds approaching 100mph, brake components need to be of the highest quality standards. For this season Stephen Powell has switched to Roadlink brake discs and Roadlink RF4001 material disc pads which give great levels of performance and consistency across the full temperature range and in these extreme race conditions.
Roadlink disc pads comply with the strict safety regulations within truck racing enforced by the FIA (the same body that governs F1) and are manufactured to European braking regulation ECE R90 in production facilities accredited with ISO9001/TS16949 quality standards.
Although ideal for intense competition, Roadlink Brake Pads were not originally designed with truck racing in mind. The exact same pads are available for a wide range of CV applications and are already fitted to fleets nationwide that are benefitting from the performance and cost savings of RF4001 material.

Currently dominating the BTRA second division by taking his truck to three wins at Brands Hatch back in April (and two runner up spots!), and picking up three further victories in May at Pembrey, Stephen Powell and his team are certainly ones to watch this year. Our congratulations go out to Stephen who is of course delighted with the recent results, confirming what the team at Roadlink already know - "... Roadlink brake discs and pads gave fantastic braking performance throughout the whole weekend...."
We wish Stephen and his team well for the 2017 season and will keep you updated on their progress here and via our regular Hot News.
