Brembo to enter Formula E as sole brake supplier

By

Brembo SpA has been appointed by Spark Racing Technology (SRT), the exclusive FIA Formula E supplier of chassis for seasons five (2018-2019), six (2019-2020) and seven (2020-2021), as the exclusive supplier of the whole braking system to include calipers, carbon rotors and pads.

The new single-seater was presented today at the Geneva Auto Show.

Alberto Bombassei, chairman of Brembo, commented: “I am particularly satisfied for this achievement because it represents the final crowning of Brembo’s strong and continued commitment, and in particular of the Racing and R&D groups, to the development and production of the system selected by SRT, which I want to personally thank for the trust granted to Brembo.

“For a company that has always been focused on continuous innovation like Brembo, Spark’s single-seater for the FIA Formula E series represents an incomparable ‘mobile lab’ for the development of technology applied to the electric car, which is the real future challenge for the automotive sector, if not already present. In such perspective we are also glad to be sharing and supporting FIA’s vision and commitment to the sustainability of motorsports and road safety.”
