Even Eurobrun Gets the Blues - Part 06 - Grid? What Grid?
After the changes made, the still white (but now with some details and JSK sponsorship) Eurobrun was in the pace to kick off the 1989 in style. The ER188B made quite well in the new field of pre-qualifying, where 13 cars fought now for the remaining spots in the main session. Foitek managed a 3rd to promote himself to weekend battle for the grid. He even managed to attain a 24th in the Friday, but engine trouble kept him off the grid.
But little knew Foitek and the team that was the only time they past the pre-qualifiying sessions in the entire season. In the remaining races of the year, the car was too off the pace and never managed to get better, mosty due to lack of money for proper development of the car, which prompted the outfit to use their parts the maximum they could, to not good results (such as a crash in Canada)
Eurobrun hired George Rytom (formerly from Ferrari) to create the new car for the second half of the season. That car, named ER 189, was to appear at the German GP, but next chapter will tell it all about its adventures
