For 1964, F2 regulations were revised to allow the use of pure racing engines of up to 4 cylinders and 1,000 cc capacity.
In those days, many F1 drivers also raced in F2, making it a very popular category.

Honda decided to enter F2 with its own engine, partnering with Jack Brabham and his Brabham Team.
The RA300E proved to be a troublesome engine resulting in poor results in their first season.

Honda came back in 1966 with a completely new engine, the RA302E.
Incorporating many ideas that would later be adopted in the RA273E F1 engine, RA320E-powered BT18 was named Brabham Honda to reflect its status as Brabham Team’s official entry machine.
The 1966 season was a complete turnaround from the poor results of the previous year.

Starting with a 1-2 finish in Goodwood by Jack Brabham and Denny Hulme, the Brabham Honda went on to win a string of 11 races in a row all the way to the Albi Grand Prix, setting a new record in the process.
Of the twelve races entered, Brabham took nine victories and Hulme two, including five 1-2 finishes and many fastest laps in what proved to be a crushingly dominant season.

Kit Features:
- Highly detailed static model
- Separate tubular space frame
- Removing cowling
- Extensively detailed 4 cylinder Honda F-2 engine
