LIVONIA, MI — As part of its strategy to expand its European engineering operations Roush has acquired England-based Mountune Racing Limited. The company said this acquisition will also address the growing demand for small-displacement, high-performance engines in the U.S.

Mountune Racing, Limited was founded in 1979 in Maldon, England. The company quickly established a reputation for building some of the most successful Mini engines on the competition circuit. In the late 80’s, Mountune started preparing Cosworth YB engines for motorsport, producing numerous championships and forging a long-term association with Ford Motor Co. To date, Mountune has supplied engines for road and rally racing, supporting championship teams from Ford, Formula Palmer Audi, Ascari and Petronas/Proton.

Mountune founder David Mountain announced the acquisition, calling it a “great opportunity.” Mountune Racing will become a wholly owned division of Roush, and will be located within Roush’s Brentwood, England, facility.
