StopTech slows the USTCC Subaru WRX.
Martinez, CA: Sheehan Motor Racing is pleased to announce StopTech's continued support of their Subaru WRX entry in the 2003 U.S. Touring Car Championship.
Sheehan Motor Racing will continue to use StopTech's patented ST-40 four piston calipers, which are an incredibly rigid design due to its unique bolt-in-bridge configuration. StopTech's huge 328mm x 28mm 48-vane two-piece vented AeroRotors® are unchanged as well. The stock rear brake calipers are also retained, as the kit is designed to work with the factory rear brake system and stock master cylinder. This combination has proven itself to be extremely capable in handling the rigors of roadracing, providing consistent braking through every race.
The StopTech brakes were put through the test of a full U.S. Touring Car Championship race season in 2002. The braking of the Subaru WRX was vastly improved, allowing the WRX to brake with other racecars several hundred pounds lighter. Throughout the 2002 season the StopTech brake kit performed flawlessly and played a large role in the team's three race wins and 2nd place championship finish.
"We are very happy to have StopTech on board with us again for 2003," said Gary Sheehan, the team's manager and driver. "The StopTech brakes were fantastic last year and we are not going to change a thing. They do their job so well we don't even worry about the brakes anymore. That inspires a lot of confidence when the driver is putting it on the line."
"StopTech is proud to participate in USTCC with Sheehan Motor Racing. Gary Sheehan is a talented driver and team manager and we believe Sheehan Motor Racing has a great opportunity to win the series this year" according to Bob Lee StopTech General Manager.
