Onroak Automotive will unveil the newest model in its line of Ligier prototypes at Le Mans next month, the French constructor has confirmed.

The closed-cockpit, carbon fiber-tubbed car is understood to be a new entry-level prototype, aimed at the club racing and track day scene.

The project, run by former Radical Sportscars director Phil Abbott, will be revealed at a press conference on June 14 in the Le Mans support paddock.

Abbott joined Onroak in December as the Managing Director of the newly created Onroak Automotive Club Cars division.

“We have designed this car with the aim to offer a new access level to the endurance pyramid, by making use of our knowledge of the CN, LMP3 and LMP2 categories,” said Onroak Automotive President Jacques Nicolet.

“This model must ease, for both drivers and teams, the discovery and learning of the driving and running of a sport-prototype.

“Its use will be the culmination for some, and others will see it as a trampoline for evolving towards the higher categories, right up to competing in the great endurance races.”
