DAYTONA, FL. (February 2010) – Compass360 Racing backed up its 2009 series championship last weekend with a visit to the Winners Circle at the season-opening race of the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge ST Series in Daytona. The team took first, fourth and fifth, all in Honda Civic Si's armed with Power Slot's Power Alloy Enhanced Brake Rotors featuring exclusive directional cooling vanes. The race will be televised on February 13th at 7:00pm Eastern on SPEED.
"We had a pretty good race," stated winning driver Lawson Aschenbach. "David did a great job keeping the nose clean and saved some brakes for me," referring to his No. 74 HPD/Skunk2 Honda Civic Si co-driver, David Thilenius. The victory was Aschenbach's fourth in 11 starts, and the second for Thilenius in his first start for Compass360.
Brothers Benoit and Donald Theetge finished fourth in the No. 77 HPD/Skunk2 Honda Civic Si, while Ryan Eversley and Zach Lutz were fifth in the No. 75 HPD/Skunk2 Honda Civic Si. Three of the team's four cars led the race at one point or another, and ran together in the top five after the pit stops were completed mid-race.
The race-winning No. 74 HPD/Skunk2 Honda Civic Si will be on display at the 2010 Canadian International AutoShow February 12-21, 2010, at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.
Power Slot Power Alloy enhanced brake rotors utilize a special formula of higher-tensile-strength iron with increased molybdenum content. This delivers improved stopping power and offers superior resistance to cracking due to thermal stress in performance driving situations like the grueling 200 mile race won by Compass360 Racing in Daytona. Power Slot’s exclusive directional cooling vanes in selected applications such as the rotors for Honda Accords or Acura TSXs used on the Compass360 Civics, additionally enhance brake performance by reducing operating temperatures under severe use. Double-disc ground friction surfaces minimize additional attention needed for pad bedding. An anti-corrosion e-coating over all unswept surfaces provides lasting, attractive appearance.
"Power Slot's Power Alloy enhanced brake rotors represent a full step forward," noted Dan Lelchuk, President of Centric Parts, which includes Power Slot and StopTech. "Power Alloy is a reliable one piece performance rotor solution with directional vanes that make a difference on the track or in any performance driving situation."
Power Alloy was named “Best New Performance Product or Accessory” at the 2008 SEMA and AAPEX trade shows by the Auto International Association (AIA), which recognizes parts manufacturers for excellence in products.
