LONG BEACH, Calif. - April 10, 2012
 – StopTech, the ultra performance and racing division of Centric Parts, has again been named the presenting sponsor for Round Three of the SCCA Pro Racing Pirelli World Challenge Championships: the Pirelli World Challenge Long Beach Grand Prix presented by StopTech.

The Official Brake System of the Pirelli World Challenge, StopTech engineers and manufactures high performance brake rotors, calipers, DOT compliant stainless steel lines, brake fluid, brake friction and complete balanced brake upgrade systems for race cars and high performance vehicles on the street and track. The race-winning, Southern California company’s ongoing brake research and technologies have resulted in four U.S. patents. The company has a long and successful presence in World Challenge, with many drivers giving credit to their StopTech brakes on the podium.

“From the beginning, StopTech has always been about providing the best braking technology and solutions for performance vehicles,” Centric Parts (StopTech’s parent company) CEO and World Challenge racer, Dino Crescentini said. “There is no better and more exciting proving ground for our company and its products than racing – and it’s always especially gratifying in Long Beach to be racing right in our backyard. Lessons we learn on the track transfer directly over to our whole line of StopTech, Power Slot and Centric Parts brake and clutch components and systems.”

The Long Beach Grand Prix Presented by StopTech will be part of the Grand Prix of Long Beach weekend held on the Streets of Long Beach, April 13-15, 2012. The weekend will mark Round Three of the World Challenge Championships for the GT and GTS classes, and will also include racing action from IndyCar, ALMS and others. 

 The Long Beach Grand Prix Presented by StopTech will air on NBC Sports Network, April 29, at 3 p.m. (EDT). All World Challenge races this season are also being streamed live online at www.world-challengetv.com.
