ThreeBond is a Japanese company established in 1955 by Osamu Ukumori. His founding principle of saving energy that is lost through ‘leaks’ such as oil and water has driven ThreeBond to be a market leader in locking agents, adhesives and gasket sealants.
After many seasons racing in the Japanese Formula 3 Championship ThreeBond made the decision at the end of 2011 to switch their attention to Europe for the 2012 racing season and a partnership with T-Sport was formed.
'ThreeBond with T-Sport's racing partnership covers three main areas: sponsorship, engine supply and product supply.
ThreeBond has produced their own F3 engine for several seasons in Japan and wished to test their engine against the elite in Europe. Proof of how competitive the engine came at the Nurburgring, Germany, in August 2012 with the first ever victory for a non-European engine in the F3 Euroseries.
Based on the steep learning curve for both parties in 2012, it was agreed to operate a two car programme in 2013 reverting to a single car option for 2015. The result of this was a run of podium placings for Alexander Sims ( two 2nds, a 3rd and a fastest lap at Vallelunga, and a 2nd and a 3rd at the Nurburgring) topped off with 4th place at the Macau Grand Prix. To improve on this, Nick Cassidy claimed 3rd at the 2014 Macau Grand Prix.
