Los Angeles Auto Show 2010

The doors to the Los Angeles Auto Show open today. The Brake Room has a sneak peek at some of the cars wearing StopTech at the show...

Fans of Team StopTech recognize this Tri-Point Mazda wearing StopTech Trophy brakes driven by Eric Foss in SCCA SPEED World Challenge series.

Some might also recall that the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR set the Nurburgring record with StopTech rotors. It also just recaptured the record up at Laguna. The 2010 makes it's debut in Los Angeles at this auto show.

Steve Saleen showed up with slew of cars from his new SMS Supercars company, which included a pair of StopTech-equipped Dodge Challengers including a 570 in yellow.

Team StopTech in Porsche Print Ad

If you were flipping through AutoWeek this week you might have came across a Porsche advertisement comparing the finish line to a blood line. The ad featured four pictures of different Porsches tearing around the track.

In case you were wondering, yes, that is the GMG Porsche driven by James Sofronas all season as part of Team StopTech. The full page ad was too big to shrink down for this post, but you'll know it when you see it by the big StopTech logo across the vehicle's nose.

How do you get your Porsche into a national advertisement? Try throwing a set of StopTech Trophy brakes on your ride and winning the Long Beach Grand Prix with it.

It worked for James.
