Record-Breaking Season for Brembo
2007 Brembo Racing is a fascinating success story just 30 years in the making. Although founded in 1961, Brembo began racing in 1975 when Enzo Ferrari entrusted the Bergamo-based, high-performance brake manufacturer with the task of fitting its most prestigious Formula 1 car. Since then, Brembo has been at the forefront of the motorsports arena, winning over 150 world championships on four-wheels and two, a record that is unprecedented in the industry.
The 2006 motorsports season was no exception as Brembo helped the likes of Aprilia, Ducati, Honda, KTM, Suzuki and Yamaha win 16 motorcycle championships last year, including the Moto GP World Championship by Nicky Hayden. Brembo also helped Aprilia secure both the 250cc and 125cc World Championships for Jorge Lorenzo and Alvaro Bautista respectively.
Brembo was also dominant in the world of Superbikes as Brembo-equipped racers won the World (Troy Bayliss with Ducati), the British (Ryuichi Kyonari and Honda) and AMA's Superbike (Ben Spies with Suzuki) and Formula Extreme (Josh Hayes and Honda).
Demonstrating Brembo's versatility in motorcycle racing, two championships were won in Motocross World (MX1 and MX3), as well as three Endurance Worlds (E1, E2 and E3), two Supermotard Worlds (S1 and S2) and two AMA Supermoto classes.
Marchesini Wheels, a wholly owned Brembo subsidiary, earned an additional eleven motorcycle crowns.
On four wheels, Brembo-equipped racers won championships in most of the top series, including NASCAR's Nextel Cup and Busch, the Champ Car World Series, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and three (American Le Mans, FIA GT and Le Mans Endurance) sports car arenas 17 championships in all!
Racing teams and manufacturers such as Aprilia, BMW, Ducati, Harley Davidson, KTM and Yamaha, who demand the best, turn to the experts in braking technology and performance: Brembo. The strong support and trusted relationships that Brembo has with more than 15 motorcycle manufacturers and championship-winning race teams in FIA and AMA motorcycle racing, is based on the fact that Brembo is the industry benchmark. There is no other company or product line on the market that can match Brembo's level of technology and performance. Brembo
