2015 is proving to be remarkably successful for Tamworth, UK-based brake and clutch manufacturer, Alcon Components. Having made further inroads into the OEM sector with the ground-breaking new Peugeot 308 GTI, they have also helped Volkswagen Motorsport on their way to another WRC championship. In a completely different sector, Alcon have worked with Supacat and the Australian Special Forces to supply an advanced braking system for the Supacat Jackal.

Described as the fastest, hardest production hot hatch to date, the 250bhp version pushes the competition right to the edge, with its 0-62 mph in 6 seconds. This kind of power takes some stopping, which explains why Peugeot asked Alcon Components to supply the braking system, comprising ‘race-developed’ 380mm cast iron brake discs, mounted on aluminium hubs, with four-piston fixed calipers. Alcon’s sales director, Jon Edwards says, “We’re particularly proud of our collaboration with Peugeot. Our work together has resulted in a braking system that will be more than capable of controlling the power of the latest iconic front runner in the hot hatch sector.” Read More »
