For over 50 years, AP Racing has had one aim - to create winners on the race track.
The world of motorsport has changed out of all recognition since those early days and AP Racing have spearheaded every major development in brake and clutch technology.
In Grand Prix Racing our success started with the incredible Auto Unions and has continued uninterrupted ever since to the championship winning Williams, McLarens, Renaults, and Ferraris. The very first car to win a grand prix with AP Racing's brakes was the Ferrari 312B driven by Mario Andretti in the South African GP at Kyalami back in March 1971. It was, remarkably, Andretti's first competitive outing for Ferrari.
AP Racing has an outstanding record in F1 - 660 Grand Prix wins starting at the Dutch GP in 1967 have been won with cars that used the British company's brakes, clutches, or both. Over that period, engine power outputs have nearly doubled but our clutches have reduced in size and weight by a remarkable 113mm and 3.3kg. With over 228 brake winners AP Racing shows the way.Over the years this success has been repeated in all other types of Single Seaters including A1GP, Champ Cars, Indy Racing League, Indy Lights, F2, F3000, F3 etc.
In Touring Cars we continue to equip winners in the ever popular DTM, British Touring Car Championship, WTCC, and Australian V8 Supercar series.
In GT & Sports Cars we continue to equip winners from Corvette, Lola, Porsche, Bentley, MG Rover, Zytec.
Victory at Le Mans in 1999 was the first time a braking system had required no change of disc and pads during the 24 hour race.
In Rally we have equipped winners from Minis via Group 4 Escorts, Lotus Sunbeams,Group B Quattros, Metros, RS200s, to the Mitsubushis, Peugeots, Toyotas, Skodas, Hyundais of recent years.
As well as supplying our range of historic calipers for older vehicles taking part in the increasingly popular historic championships, we supply the very latest systems for the current Group N and World Rally Cars of today. In other rally catagories such as Super 1600 we supply Citroen, Fiat, MG Rover, Peugeot & Renault.

The past five seasons has seen AP Racing equipping many championship winning cars. Building on these successes, AP Racing continue to develop new caliper and rotor ranges for the extensive stock car market.
On Two Wheels and Three we have a long and successful record in Grand Prix racing winning many world championships. Currently we are supplying state of the art brakes to competitors in the world Superbike championship. Building on this success we now offer a range of uprated brakes as bolt-on replacement for OE Braking equipment.
