Neil Brown Engineering has been involved in Formula 3 since 1986, where a NBE engine with VW won the British F3 Championship with Andy Wallace. After a British Championship win with Toyota and J.J. Lehto in 1988, a long and successful period of tuning and developing the Mugen-Honda F3 engine began. In our first year, we narrowly missed the championship with Alan McNish in 1989.
Since then NBE has enjoyed a huge amount of success with three generations of the highly competitive Mugen-Honda F3 engines, including 15 British Formula 3 Championships wins between 1990 and 2005 (10 championship wins in a row from 1996 to 2005). In 2006 our engines finished second in the championship. In 2008 there were four wins and several podium finishes. We also achieved two wins and several podium finishes in the German F3 Cup.
The latest specs of these engines are still for lease and can be used in the F3 open championship. NBE can also offer professional rebuild services to our existing engines.
