StopTech Helps Lamb and Baldwin to World Challenge Success at Monterey

Todd Lamb leads the Touring Car field in his StopTech-equipped Number 71 Compass360 NKN Honda Civic Siduring the Pirelli World Challenge race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

Todd Lamb scored his second Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car victory, and in the process took over the championship lead after the win at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California. Lamb's Compass360 National Kart News Honda Civic, which had started using StopTech brakes at Laguna Seca, edged out Jeff Altenburg and teammate Ryan Winchester after a late race caution and fierce battle in the closing laps of the race.

"What a great weekend and another amazing job by Compass360,” said Lamb. “The NKN/SafeRacer Honda had a perfect balance throughout the race. We worked hard to get the setup just right, including a switch to StopTech brakes, because we knew corner speed and late braking would be our only shot to stay in front of the turbo cars. We were hoping to gain some points in the championship so coming away with the points lead is a great accomplishment."

Meanwhile, in GTS, Jack Baldwin and Team Hot Wheels finished second in Friday’s Pirelli World Challenge race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, continuing a strong season-opening streak of four top-five finishes in the year’s first five races in the StopTech-equipped No. 68 Hot Wheels/GTSport Racing/Napleton Porsche Cayman S.

“I really want to thank our awesome crew of Isaac Fritsche, Marc Gomora and Jeff Parsons,” Baldwin said. “I also have to acknowledge the great direction and engineering we receive from Steve Ruiz at StopTech, one of the reasons the Team Hot Wheels Cayman runs as fast as it does.”

The Team Hot Wheels Cayman was prepped at StopTech’s shop in Carson, Calif., in between the Miller and Mazda Raceway events.

“After Miller we took the Team Hot Wheels Cayman back to the StopTech race shop where it was very well prepared for battle in Round 5,” Baldwin said. “One of our biggest assets is our StopTech brakes which allow me to take the Cayman very deep into the braking zone with confidence. We came to Laguna very focused and on somewhat of a mission to do better after our fourth-place finish at Miller - and it worked.”
