Introduced halfway through 1989 the new car, the ER189, arrived in time for the German GP, and so too did a sponsor in the form of Jägermeister, which painted the attractive new machine in its famous orange colours. However, even for the rest of the year there was only one ER189 chassis, and the team had to keep taking one ER188B to each race as a spare. And, considering the reliability problems associated with the untried ER189, that spare often had to come into use. Part of the ER189 also had to be remade after the initial roll-hoop behind the driver's head was not high enough, siphoning off more valuable resources.
Foitek left the team after Belgium, and Larrauri was drafted back in for another crack, dovetailing his sports car commitments with peddling the hopeless EuroBrun on a Friday morning, and never for a very long time. But like his predecessor he was unable to make it through pre-qualifying, let alone have a go at getting onto the grid. Before the end of the season, Jägermeister had departed as quickly as they had come, and by the Australian GP the car was plain black and almost sponsorless. People in the paddock were asking whether or not the team should be allowed to continue into 1990.
But continue they did. Although the team was still based in Senago and still called EuroBrun, Euroracing was fully out of the picture. Ryton had made some minor revisions to the ER189 before leaving for Tyrrell, and in a rather ambitious move Brun decided to run two cars in 1990, one for Coloni refugee Roberto Moreno, the other for paying Italian Claudio Langes. There were also plans to run the Austrian-designed Neotech 70-degree V12 engine, which was tested in the back of a Brun Porsche sports car, but lack of finance meant the deal fell through, and the team had to revert to the Judd V8s.
This car is in perfect condition and comes with a correct Judd 3.5 litre V8 engine fitted, this has been completely rebuilt by Judd Racing Developments, is completely fresh and is believed to have won a Grand Prix whilst fitted to Nigel Mansell's car.
A spares package is available which includes gear ratios, starting kit and spare wings.
The car is priced at £44995 without and engine, or £99995 with the engine.
