Onroak Automotive is carrying out a series of preliminary wind tunnel tests on its 2017-spec LMP2 car.

The new model has been named the Ligier JS P217, which continues the legacy of the late influential car builder Guy Ligier and his former racing team-mate Jo Schlesser.

The first stages of development focusing on CFD computer design have been completed, creating the first visual representation of the new coupe.

Engineers and technicians from Onroak are currently at the RUAG wind tunnel in Switzerland to examine the initial aerodynamic responses of the JS P217, using a 40 percent scale model.
