Race pads with light initial bite and friction a flat torque curve and great modulation and release characteristics
Performance Friction race pads have been the pad of choice for the BimmerWorld IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Team since we tested our first set back in our World Challenge days. The fact is, Performance Friction race pads take home more championships per year than any other pad brand on the market, and those same pads are available to you.
PFC’s 97 compound debuted as a favorite in sportscar endurance racing and won races in CART, ALMS, World Challenge, Grand Am, and club racing. The 97 compound has less initial bite and average torque than 01 with great modulation, a very flat torque curve, and good release characteristics. This was one of PFC’s first endurance compounds and has served as a great general-purpose pad for club racing and track day events.
The mission of Performance Friction is to provide the optimal pad compound for each application that they make. Rather than the “shotgun” method of developing every pad in every compound, PFC builds the correct pad to suit the venue it is designed for.

NOTE on Street Use - These are race and track-use pads. While they can be driven on the street, and many of our customers choose to drive to and from events with them, they are designed for ultimate track performance and their street manners may not meet everyone's demands. If you are looking for a street-worthy race pad, 08 or 06 compounds have the lowest wear rates and noise of the PFC race pads.
