They definitely have their foothold in Nascar, Grandam, Formula Nippon, and others and have won their share of prestigious championships as well from what I have seen/read. Take note that I am far from a brake expert so I am merely regurgitating a lot of what I read online. I am just an AP whore at heart.

Akebono appears to be coming up the ranks as well having their braking systems utilized on the Mclaren MP4-12C GT3 and Lexus LF-A race cars.

Also, I did consider PF's no nonsense Z33 setup for my BMW before 'settling' on a bespoke AP setup. Since I err more towards the aesthetics side (without giving up quality and engineering of course), I opted for a 'prettier' looking caliper and disc combo.
