Onroak Automotive acquires specialist race car constructor

28 September 2017

Onroak Automotive is widening its scope through the acquisition of Tork Engineering activities on 27 September. They include the design and construction of racing cars in complementary segments to those in which Onroak Automotive has been present until now. This extension of its activities will enable the constructor to offer new know how, new products and additional services.

The new Onroak Automotive site is based in Amilly, between Paris and Magny-Cours. It will retain its 21 employees and remains under the management of Richard Tur. They will continue to design and produce Silhouette-type cars built around tubular chassis destined for different types of circuit racing plus off-road events like rallycross, off-road rallies and ice races. Tork Engineering also collaborates with major manufacturers on modifications of products and design of concept cars.

“Integrating Tork Engineering’s activities into Onroak Automotive means that we can widen our activity as a constructor of racing cars as well as opening up new niche markets,” said Jacques Nicolet, Onroak Automotive CEO. “The new Onroak Automotive site in Amilly will be able, like those at Le Mans and Magny-Cours, to work in synergy with the Everspeed group’s other companies. Thanks to our new activity we will be well placed to create fresh opportunities to collaborate with the major manufacturers.”

“The Tork Engineering teams and I are very happy and proud to be joining Onroak Automotive,” said Richard Tur, site manager. “After almost five great years with Poclain Véhicules, we’re looking forward to writing a new chapter in our history and contributing to the development of the Everspeed group.”
