The MINI JCW Team has posted a nice post race recap of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. They talk about everything from the practice to the race including some information about the switch to the new JCW brakes.
The 11 turn, 2.238 mile road course near Salinas, CA, provided a change in scenery from their previous race at Sebring Raceway, but also created some new challenges for the MINI JCW team. The brake system has been a gremlin for the team this season, even with changes made after Sebring, according to team owner Luis Periocarpi. “In light of the braking performance issues at Sebring, IMSA has approved the team’s switch from the Cooper S model’s brake caliper back to the original John Cooper Works (JCW) brake calipers for better stopping power.”
