Once used to slow the Red Bull Racing cars on the F1 circuits of the world. this carbon fibre F1 brake pad has been upcycled into a unique iPhone/tablet holder by our design partners at Racing Gold.
The brake pad has been hand-polished to a marble-like finished and a groove has been machined out to allow the insertion of an iPhone/tablet. Included with the holder are 2 strips of foam to allow the user to ensure the fit is snug and the base is fitted with soft feet to protect your surfaces.
The top surface of the piece shows the race used, worn surface. Often seen on the sides/bottom of the brake pad are temperature-induced splits, and the Brembo six pot cylinder marks can still be seen. Measures 15cm long x 7cm wide x 2cm tall with a 1.2cm deep groove.
Limited edition of 100 pieces. Comes complete with a storage pouch and Racing Gold Certificate of Authenticity which verifies its Red Bull Racing F1 heritage.
20% from the sale of this piece goes to 'Wings for Life'; the not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation
Please note. Due to its race-used nature, each item may differ slightly in its final shape & appearance.
