The EBC Brakes Spain-supported team scored highly in the Baja Extremadura

The Ajuja Racing outfit recently entered the gruelling 2024 Baja Extremadura rally event – spanning several days and seeing entrants pilot their vehicles from Badajoz, Western Spain, all the way to Alto Alentejo, Portugal.

Using EBC’s SXR-Series brake pads in their Can Am SXS machine, the team performed brilliantly across the weekend, securing podiums in multiple races and categories.

You can read more about how they got on below in the team’s own words…

“The Ahuja Racing team finished the Baja Extremadura with a double podium thanks to the EBC Brakes compounds!

“We are pleased to announce that the team, sponsored by EBC Frenos, has concluded its participation in Baja Extremadura with outstanding results and a very positive experience. This was the team’s first test scoring for the European Baja Championship, also counting on its new addition: Fausto Mota.

“The prologue stage left the team in great spirits; it was the first timed section that Fidel Castillo Ruiz and Fausto Mota did together, achieving a second position in the Spanish All-Terrain Rally Championship (CERTT) and a third in the European Baja Championship (FIA).

“The good feelings continued during the next stage of the day, improving positions and finishing first in the CERTT and second in the FIA.”

“The second day of the rally was even more complicated, with very long meaning you had to keep a cool head. During the first stage of the day, Fidel and Fausto found a large hidden stone that broke a fundamental piece of the Can Am. However, the great skills of Fausto the mechanic allowed the car to be repaired quickly, although they lost 25 crucial minutes.

“Despite this setback, they managed to recover time thanks to their excellent performance, finishing fourth in the CERTT and third in the FIA.

“The last stage went smoothly, allowing the duo to continue recovering time and positions. The final result of the rally was seconds in the CERTT and third in the FIA, a result with which we are very happy with, considering it could have been much worse.

“It is important to highlight that EBC Brakes compounds played a crucial role in these achievements, providing the necessary performance and reliability to face the challenges of this modality.”
