Onroak Automotive is widening its scope through the acquisition of Tork Engineering activities.




Since 27th September 2017 Tork Engineering’s activities have been added to those of Onroak Automotive’s: they include the design and construction of racing cars in complementary segments to those in which Onroak Automotive has been present up until now.



This extension of its activities will enable the constructor to offer new knowhow, 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. Its industrial premises cover 2 300m2 and it has a design office, a machining workshop, a mechanical-welding workshop as well as mechanics and paint facilities.



The infrastructures and knowhow in Amilly enable its staff to design and produce Silhouette-type cars built around tubular chassis destined for different types of racing, on circuits in particular with the Mitjets, and 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.



Jacques Nicolet, Onroak Automotive CEO:
“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.



 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.”



Richard Tur, site manager
: “The Tork Engineering teams and I are very happy and proud to be joining Onroak Automotive. 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.”
