Eng started karting in 2003, by competing in Intercontinental A Junior karts, competing in the Andrea Margutti Trophy and the Italian Open Masters. Eng finished 18th in the Margutti Trophy, leading home Marco Wittmann, while he finished 30th in the Italian Open Masters. Eng continued at JICA level in 2004, finishing seventh in the Margutti Trophy, and 31st in the European Championship. One highlight however was that Eng won the Italian Open Masters, holding off Wittmann again by five points. He moved to ICA level in 2005, but only contested the Italian Championship and the Open Masters. Eng finished in the top ten of both series, ranking ninth in the Open Masters and tenth in the Italian Championship.

Formula BMW

Eng made his car racing debut for ADAC Berlin-Brandenburg in the Formula BMW ADAC series in 2006. Eng finished tenth in the championship and runner-up behind Jens Klingmann in the Rookie Cup, with a podium coming at the third round at Lausitz. He also competed in a solitary round of the British series for Carlin Motorsport at Silverstone. He finished fourteenth in the second race, having retired from the first. Eng continued in the ADAC series in 2007, and would go on to finish third in the championship behind the Eifelland Racing cars of Klingmann and Daniel Campos-Hull who took twelve of the eighteen race wins between them. Eng did take one win at Barcelona but only after Klingmann was given a ten-second penalty for dangerous driving.

Eng did make up for this in some aspects by winning the end of season World Final from pole position. Having switched to Mücke Motorsport, Eng dominated the race before leading home Wittmann, Klingmann and Sebastian Saavedra. This earned him a test for the BMW Sauber Formula One team, which he undertook in 2008. Eng completed his FBMW career by driving for Mücke in the inaugural season of the Formula BMW Europe championship. As he was a guest driver, he was ineligible to score points. His best finish came at Spa, when he finished fourth in a wet race.
