HRE Race Program 

We believe in challenging the standards, this is why we created the HRE Race Program. 

The standard 

Engine Warranty

HRE is driven by passion for challenging the standards offered to the racer. We combine aerospace quality with automotive engineering, creating the ultimate in modern race engine technology and service. 

Our Race Program is intended to keep a tight relationship between team and engine builder. Our engines are built with extensive build documentation noting down every component, hardware and assembly process involved with the engine build. This documentation is used to keep the engine build process at the highest possible level. We also use this documentation for scheduled maintenance and as a reference for future development.


We have an ongoing development program to ensure our drivers always have the best engine package available. From engine power and delivery, dry sumps, fan systems and engine mounting, the best will always be on offer to teams involved with the HRE program. We encourage feedback from our customer. Our goal is to supply the best package to meet your needs.  

Throughout the build process the customer will be kept up to date with engine status and lead time for completion, with any issues being raised immediately. 

Technical support is offered to the team throughout the year. Any questions raised with HRE will be answered promptly to ensure everything is running as it should.

Hughes Race Engines provides a workmanship limited warranty (due to the nature of high performance engines) on complete new builds assembled and tested by HRE. This warrants that the new engine is free from defect in workmanship during assembly.

It is the responsibility of the purchaser to have a certified mechanic install the engine to the chassis. HRE will be available for tech support to answer any questions during this process or may fit and plumb engine on request. 

Warranty claims will be case by case with the engine being pulled down and assessed, third party assessment can be requested by mutual assessor.

Warranties are non-transferable between owners.


Engine packages will be priced in full and created to suit the customer’s needs and requirements.

Once the engine has been signed off by the customer, the first of three invoices will be sent through to begin build. The payment scheme is as followed. 

  • Initial payment to start job

  • Second payment once a major milestone is reached

  • Final Payment on collection
