Hawk Performance + DirtFish Media


Hawk Performance to Offer Full School and Rally Team Support

DirtFish Rally School and world-renowned brake company, Hawk Performance are pleased to announce a newly-cultivated partnership.

Both organizations have become leaders in the automotive industry – Hawk, for creating high performance brake products, and DirtFish for their premier driving school and championship-winning motorsports team.

“The partnership between DirtFish and Hawk came naturally because their performance brakes were already the top choice for our Rally School and Motorsports fleet of Subaru rally cars,” says Justin Simpson, CEO at DirtFish.

“Brakes are one of the most aggressively used pieces on our cars, and having the best performance parts that can withstand that is imperative to the success of our programs. Combining the best equipment with our top notch rally school programs allows us to win races.”

DirtFish is also an unequaled R&D center and proving ground for industry-leading companies. Adding Hawk Performance to the list, DirtFish also tests products for Subaru, Method Race Wheels, Motul and Hoosier. Gathering vital data to help provide their customers the best products possible.

“DirtFish is at the heart of the growing rally world movement, and the partnership Hawk Performance is building with everyone from the shop to the classroom to track is a really exciting opportunity for all of us,” noted Malcolm Sedano, Hawk Performance Group Manager.


The two companies have teamed up to provide education to all the students who come through the Rally School on how crucial an element effective braking is in pushing the limits of both the car and driver.

Sedano said, “Most importantly, everyone who gets behind the wheel at DirtFish will be using Hawk Performance pads, confident in knowing they will keep themselves and their co-drivers safe and composed when training and competing.”

At DirtFish Rally School, we pride ourselves in providing the best experience for our students and drivers. That quality is more than superficial and traces its path all the way down to the nuts, bolts, and fluids that keep our fleet running.
