Brembo will serve as the exclusive brake systems supplier for the new-generation ABB FIA Formula E Championship car, which was presented at the Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday.
The Italian manufacturer enters the series having been appointed by Spark Racing Technology, the sole chassis supplier to the series.
The deal encompasses the all-electric single-seater’s entire braking system, including calipers, carbon rotors and pads.
“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,” commented Brembo Chairman Alberto Bombassei.
“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.”
