Default Racing Brake Fluid

Hello, I have participated in some open track days (as well as had some instruction at Mid-Ohio) and I want to change my brake fluid. What kind would you recommend for track use? I already ordered SS lines.

I tried to search for this thread with no success. If there is one please just tell me the link.

Thanks in advance.

Castrol SRF or AP Racing PRF 660

These two brake fluids are the best of the best.

Thanks Cleveland! I will look into both. If it was you, which would you choose?

Thanks again.

Tmead-

I'm in the same boat..I'd like to put in clean fluid for racing season. AP Racing is what I had planned, unless Clev disagrees?

Motul RBF 600 is good stuff too.
I personally use Castrol SRF and do a full brake flush each spring.

I use ATE Super Blue. No problems with fade at track days, including Mid-O.

When I mentioned I was planning a track day to my tech at the BMW dealership, this is what he recommended. And the dealership (The BMW Store) installed it without charge, and covered the cost of the fluid as well.
