Boro was a Formula One team from the Netherlands run by the brothers Bob and Rody Hoogenboom.

Their single car was built by the Ensign team, but was renamed Boro after their main sponsor, HB Bewaking, ended up as proprietor of the car after a legal dispute with Ensign owner Morris Nunn.

In the small Dutch town of Bovenkerk, the Hoogenboom brothers set up a factory to work on the N175. They entered a total of eight Grands Prix between 1976 and 1977, but failed to make a lasting impression. The team achieved finishes in only two events, the best being eighth place for Brian Henton in the 1976 Belgian Grand Prix.
