Onroak Automotive, a French constructor of sports racing cars, is the result of the combination of two of the passions of its president, Jacques Nicolet: his passion for motor sport, in particular the Le Mans 24 Hours, and his passion for entrepreneurship.
After his successes with the OAK Racing team, Jacques Nicolet decided to use this experience of technology and racing he had gathered to set up a company devoted to the design and production of sports prototypes.
The result is Onroak Automotive based at the strategic Le Mans and Magny-Cours sites, where it designs, produces and sells a range of sports prototypes, in particular the Ligier make.
European, Asian and American teams have met with success racing the following Onroak Automotive sports prototypes, CN, LM P3 and LM P2 in national and international endurance championships. They benefit from an active, personalised client service provided by the constructor.
In 2015, Onroak Automotive set up a branch in North America called Onroak Automotive North America to meet the needs of US teams and the increasing activity on the American continent.
In the space of a few short years, Onroak Automotive has confirmed its status as a sports prototype constructor at the highest level in international racing because of the performance of its cars and its professionalism. It is one of the five constructors of LM P3 chassis to have been selected by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest. In addition, in July 2015, it was chosen by the above body, the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) and IMSA (International Motorsports Association) as one of the four constructors of the new LM P2 chassis that will be introduced in 2017.
