AP Racing collaborates with BAC to optimise all-new Mono supercar

5 August 2020

AP Racing has partnered with BAC (Briggs Automotive Company) to develop the brand new generation of the BAC Mono supercar. The leading motorsport and OEM component supplier is providing specialist brake callipers and discs, both of which come as standard on the lightweight single-seater.

The callipers used on the road-legal, high-performance vehicle are AP Racing’s forged aluminium PRO 5000 R design, part of its patented Radi-CAL range. The manufacturer is also supplying the brake discs fitted to the new car as standard.

“BAC came to us with the design ethos of optimising its entire vehicle via each individual component and removing weight wherever possible. This philosophy is something AP Racing has mastered over decades to its safety-critical parts,” says Matthew Dodd, key account manager at AP Racing. “So, using our expertise, we provided BAC with a selection of lightweight, high-performance braking options – agreeing that the PRO 5000 R was the best choice for the all-new Mono.” Dodd, key account manager at AP Racing. “This philosophy is something AP Racing has mastered over decades to its safety-critical parts.

The callipers fitted to the supercar are a forged, two-piece aluminium design and feature an asymmetric concept alongside increased stiffness, resulting in optimal braking performance. The part is protected by its anodised finish, stainless steel pistons and wear plates and high temperature seals, ensuring product longevity in demanding circumstances.

The practicality of the PRO 5000 R calliper perfectly complements the wheel and disc sizes. Additionally, the braking component can be retrofitted on the previous-generation BAC Mono supercar, allowing for a completely adaptable set-up.

“AP Racing has had a longstanding relationship with BAC for many years now, and coupled with our expertise, this makes us the perfect partner for BAC’s latest project,” continues Dodd. “Our OEM performance pedigree is just as important to us as our racing heritage, that’s why customers like BAC, Bugatti and Lotus all trust us in delivering their high-performance requirements.”
