Hi, I am one of Brembo's calipers, and I want to tell you about my standard day at the Dakar race, the world's hardest car competition: over 3 thousand miles throughout Peru, of which almost 3,000 are of Special stages.
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.
