LAYING THE FOUNDATIONS
Introducing Gianni and Maria Taroni: how everything began, from rebuilding servo-assisted brakes to playing a pivotal role in F1 championship victory.
Forever, ‘Brakes’ had been his mantra. While still just boys, in their first workshop, he (…) refined a compressor based brake system similar to today’s ABS. His experience led to the key development which brought Didier Pironi to victory at the exciting 1980 Grand Prix of Belgium.
THE CREATION OF A NEW MARKET
The first performance discs, brake calipers and brake kits, produced in a new factory.
In March 1983, the first ever commercially available grooved disc, the C83, was brought to market by TAROX.
How TAROX products and manufacturing processes become compliant to engineering standards and how continuous innovation is in the company DNA.
In the mid-1990s vehicle used at track day events became more popular, and it became evident that there was a need for a new disc surface design more capable of enduring the stress of circuit use.
