Our racing division TMD Performance GmbH is building on 100+ years of experience in racing with brands such as Mintex and Pagid which have unprecedented success on the track.

We believe that part of our success is the strong partnerships that we have built and maintained over the years with manufacturers and race teams, from club sport level to world endurance works teams.

Based on a foundation of trackside development and extensive research and development, the Racing Division continually works to improve their friction formulations. Each pad can be specifically tailored to the overall race car modification.


Some of the biggest endurance teams use TMD Friction products to remain at the number one spot on the podium. Up to 80 percent of vehicles competing in 24-hour races (Le Mans, Spa, Daytona and Nürburgring or 12 hours of Sebring) use TMD Friction products. In addition UK based Aston Martin Racing and German based racing team, Black Falcon are technical partners of TMD Friction. These partnerships are characterised by an intense and open cooperation with only one goal: finding the right friction formulation to win the race!
