While the first Norma M30 LMP3 has come out of the new Norma Automotive workshops in Alès, work continues in St-Pé-de-Bigorre at the factory created in 1984 by Norbert Santos. Nova Proto was born under the impulse of Guillem Roux, a close friend of the creator of Norma, and Camille Santos, the daughter of Norbert.
Nova Proto will be taking four employees of the Pyrenean manufacturer with the goal of exploiting the Norma M20 FC for circuits and hill climbs. Technical support will be provided to customers of CN prototypes.
“We didn’t want to not relocate everything”,said Yann Belhomme, director of Duqueine Engineering. “Norma’s long-time employees created their own company, Nova Proto, and we gave them the rights to operate and market the car. It was important to secure jobs, which we managed to do through this option.” NovaProto is recruiting staff: email@example.com
