Onroak Automotive confirm Ligier LMP3 Prototype

Onroak Automotive has completed its sports prototype roster by announcing the Ligier JS P3.

As a continuation of the successful Ligier JS P2 (LMP2) and the JS 53 EVO (CN), the JS P3 will take inspiration from several of the key aerodynamic and design elements of its predecessors.

Onroak Automotive is the fourth manufacturer to take on the challenge of building an LMP3 racer, after Ginetta-Juno, LAS Motorsport and Ave Motorsports-Riley Technologies all announced projects over the winter. This latest entry will be presented at the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans, with its track debut bookmarked the summer. It will become available to customers in September, allowing them plenty of time to prepare for the 2016 season.

While Ginetta-Juno has been hastily preparing its customers for the LMP3 category’s debut in the 2015 European Le Mans Series, Onroak Automotive is purposefully delaying the development of the Ligier JS P3, in order to maximise its potential ahead of its three-year homologation freeze.

“This Ligier JS P3 confirms our ambitions to design and sell a complete range of sports prototypes for endurance,” explained Jacques Nicolet, President of Onroak Automotive.

“We were already present with success on the market for the CN and LM P2 categories. Backed by our know-how, our experience, and the time we’ve given ourselves for its design and development we’re convinced that this new car will be a success. We’d like to build up a real endurance ladder and accompany our clients from one category to the next.”
