Teams Using PWR Keep Their Cool To Win The Rolex 24 at Daytona

PWR Performance Radiators on Winning Cars at the Rolex 24 Hours

Atlanta, Georgia, Brumos Racing and TRG used the revolutionary PWR radiators to help power their way to the checker flag at the historic 47th running of Grand-Am's Rolex 24 at Daytona. In fact, eight of the top 10 finishers Sunday at the World Center of Racing all used PWR Performance radiators.

The PWR radiators specifically designed to maximize the engineering of the Grand-Am Daytona Prototype cars and used on the Brumos-Riley-Porsche are proven, by dyno and race condition data, to lower engine operating temperatures significantly which increases horsepower as well as providing longer life for motors and, in some cases, additional driver comfort over the long run.

"This was my thirty-first Rolex 24 and I have never had a car, or two for that matter, that had exactly the same engine temperatures at the start and the finish of 24 hours - the PWR rads were unbelievable!", said Mike Colucci, Brumos Racing's Technical Director.

The radiators run by the GT class winning Porsche GT3 of TRG not only provide lower operating temperatures, but also have a long life proven in the severe road racing environment of a 24 hour event. This durability helps to decrease racing preparation costs, overall budgets as well the need to carry unnecessary spares to cover chronic part failures.

Kevin Buckler, CEO of TRG and TRG Motorsports was ecstatic with the difference PWR made, "Last year we lost the race because of overheating problems. This year we were never in danger of that happening again with the PWR rads in our cars".

Kees Weel, Owner of PWR Performance Products was overjoyed with victory in both classes. "A year ago we were the new boys on the block trying to prove ourselves - one year on the PWR product has assisted both Brumos and TRG in driving to victory lane. I'm delighted with the job the boys at DB Products have done in getting PWR into the racing scene in America".

"We had PWR radiators in 24 out of the 49 car field at the Rolex 24," Jack Baldwin, Co-Director of DB Products said. "Even though the weather for the event was fairly mild, with ambient temperatures in the 50's at night and in the low 70's during the day, the team's did not have to worry about the rigors of the race causing radiator failures."
