Well, at Road Atlanta you generate a lot of heat in the back straight slowing down for the 10a-10b complex (walk to that location and watch how red/orange peoples brakes get there) and then again on the front straight entering turn 1. For me after a good 3-4 laps with no traffic I get notable fade slowing for both turn 5 and turn 6 even though both of these especially turn 6 are reasonably fast corners. If I don't watch the brakes I'll get more and more fade on subsequent laps, but I'm not usually trying to see how hot I can get my brakes and will back off a tad or more often than not, traffic slows you enough to have full brakes back in less than a lap. I'm running Pagid RS-19s front and rear and Castrol SRF (this year only, don't think it's any better than Motul) on otherwise stock brake system (except for ducting).
