Brembo Celebrates Golden Anniversary with its 20th Overall Win at The 24 Hours of Le Mans

For Brembo, a world leader in brake technology, this was the Italian manufacturer’s 11th overall crown in 12 years and the 20th victory since its first win at La Sarthe in 1989.  Brembo supplied over two thirds (40 cars) of the 56 car field for Le Mans this year, including 14 of the 17 LMP 1 prototypes competing.

The #2 Audi R18 TDI of Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer and pole-sitter Benoit Treluyer bested the three Peugeot 908s, taking the checkered flag just 13.8 seconds ahead of the #9 Peugeot.

Early on, the Audis dominated, only to have two-time Le Mans Champion Alan McNish total the #3 Audi in the first hour of the race and last year’s champion Mike Rockenfeller doing the same with the  #1 Audi  in  the  8th  hour. So, the #2  Audi  was  left  to contest the  world’s  greatest endurance race against the French tricolor and did so with flying colors, giving Audi Sport its tenth win in 12 years on the legendary 8.5-mile Circuit de la Sarthe west of Paris.

Since Brembo  began  racing  with  Ferrari  in  1975,  whether four-wheel  or  two,  open-wheel, prototype or GT, the Italian manufacturer of high-performance braking systems has won more world championships at more great venues like Le Mans, Daytona, Sebring, Monaco and Baja than any other competitor.

Racing  teams  and  manufacturers  such  as  Aston  Martin,  Audi, Corvette,  Ferrari,  Porsche, Mercedes-Benz AMG and Lamborghini, who demand the best, turn to the experts in braking technology  and  performance:  Brembo. The  strong  support and trusted  relationships that Brembo has with more than 30 original equipment manufacturers and hundreds of championship-winning race teams in F1, WRC, NASCAR, IndyCar and sports cars, is based on the fact that Brembo is an industry benchmark.
