EuroBrun History & Team Record

Successful sportscar entrant Walter Brun decided to try his hand at F1 in 1988 by purchasing the previously Alfa Romeo backed Euroracing team of Giancarlo Pavanello.  Euroracing's 1987 chassis was redesigned to accept an off the shelf Cosworth powerplant and Brun teamed rising star Stefano Modena with his longtime associate Oscar Larrauri.  Although the team qualified for most of the races during the 1988 season, the lack of preparation meant that the cars rarely made it to the finish.

For 1989 the team scaled back to a one car operation beginning the season with a derivative of the ER188 with a Judd engine before being replaced by the new ER189 design in July.  Neither design was effective and after countless futile attempts at qualifying by youngster Gregor Foitek, Larrauri was asked back to try (unsuccessfully) to drag the car onto the grid.

Additional sponsorship allowed the team to run two cars for 1990 but Roberto Moreno was only able to drag himself on to the grid twice while paying partner Claudio Langes never made it out of pre-qualifying. At the end of the season, Brun said goodbye to F1 and returned to sports cars.
