Hi, I am a Brembo Caliper and I would like to tell you about my typical day in the Dakar Rally, the hardest motor race in the world: almost 6 thousand miles, half of, which including special trials, through Peru, Bolivia and Argentina.
Right now, I am in Arequipa, Peru, at 7,661 feet above sea level. I am part of the braking system of an important team participating in the Dakar Rally and a contender for the final victory. Along with my teammates, the disc and the brake pads, we make up the Brembo braking system, a very efficient team designed and custom built to equip the vehicles that aim to win the Dakar Rally.
After all, we were all born into the business: our ancestors, namely the Brembo braking systems of the past, won this race many times, as far back as the days when it was held in Africa and it was still called the Parigi-Dakar.
