HWA Mercedes M271 Formula 3 engine rebuilds are set to become up to 30% cheaper after HWA Mercedes formally approved local engine builder Ian Richards as the nominated builder for Australia. Richard’s R-Tek Motor Sport Services company has also been the only certified Spiess Tuning engine builder in Australia for 10 years.

All required tooling and dyno equipment are now onsite at Richards’ engine building facility in South Australia. “ Much as we are racing both these brands of engines ourselves equal performance levels are assured as we do not have access to the factory source codes for either brand. All customer engines are dyno run using the client’s ECU” (Engine Management Unit) Richards said.

All engines will be serviced to Mercedes exacting standards, the world renowned engine company previously required all engines to be returned to its German factory for service and re-build upon completion of the normal competition life.

‘‘We have a fully air conditioned dedicated engine room in our race shop to handle both the Spiess and Mercedes service agreements .” Richards said.

The first engine expected to take to the engine room is R-Tek Motorsport’s Dallara F311 Mercedes engine with a number of other competitors also expressing interest.
