Lucky Strike B*A*R Honda is pleased to announce the extension of its Team Technical Partnership with Alcon brake calipers and master cylinders for a further two years. The renewal of the relationship follows a successful Team Technical Partnership in 2004, the highlight of which was B*A*R Honda's success as runner-up in the 2004 Formula One World Championship.

Brake wear management is critical in Formula One. Many of the circuits in the F1 calendar, with varying characteristics and track conditions, are especially demanding on brakes and it is therefore vital that brake temperatures are controlled. Alcon's technology ensures that the brake system remains well within the operating temperature limits during a Grand Prix weekend.

B*A*R Honda Technical Director, Geoffrey Willis, commented: "Alcon continues to be an ideal Technical Partner for the B*A*R Honda team, as its wealth of experience in the motorsport industry is important to us as we pursue our objective of challenging for race wins. We are confident that Alcon's range of F1 calipers will contribute towards reaching that objective."

Alistair Fergusson, Alcon's Managing Director enthused: "I am delighted that we have renewed our Agreement with B*A*R Honda. Over the past few years our two companies have worked closely together to develop technology to beat the competition, and we are looking forward to continuing our Team Technical Partnership for the second consecutive year and beyond".
