DAMS Lucas Oil begins affiliation with clothing brand 8JS

DAMS Lucas Oil is delighted to welcome a new name to its growing list of partners, as French fashion label 8JS becomes the team’s official travel kit supplier.

Founded by Nicolas and Sacha Prost, sons of the legendary four-time Formula 1 World Champion Alain Prost, along with Nicolas’ wife Delphine, the marque boasts strong motorsport heritage. It pays homage to one of the most revered eras in motorsport, the 1970s, with its name 8JS referring to eight iconic drivers who defined the era with their charisma, style and talent. The eight also represents infinity, speaking to the permanent place that the period holds in the history of motorsport.

The brand’s impressive racing pedigree, and its commitment to high-grade, durable products, make it the perfect partner for DAMS Lucas Oil as it competes at the top level of motorsport, a world where these qualities can be the difference between success and failure. The team is fortunate to enjoy a pre-existing connection with 8JS co-founder Nicolas Prost. The 24 Hours of Le Mans LMP1-L class winner has an existing relationship with DAMS Lucas Oil’s Managing Director, Yannick Hubert, as the pair worked together for several years in Formula E as part of French outfit Renault e.dams, where Prost took three victories.

8JS will supply the team with all their travel kit, including polo shirts, half-zip jackets and lightweight coats.

Pre-season testing for the 2024 FIA Formula 2 season is on 11-13 February at Bahrain International Circuit, with the first round of the campaign set for 29 February – 2 March at the same venue.


Nicolas Prost, Co-Founder, 8JS: “I’m pleased to start this affiliation with DAMS Lucas Oil. They are a highly respected team in motorsport and one with whom I already have a strong rapport. This partnership aligns with our commitment to preserving our continued heritage in racing, and we look forward to developing our collaboration based on the passion and values that we share.”

Charles Pic, Team Owner:  “I’m happy to begin working with 8JS, a brand with a deep connection to motorsport, along with a strong focus on creating high-quality products. The relationship the team has with Nicolas Prost is sure to make the process of working together easier and more productive. We are excited to collaborate closely together for the duration of this season and beyond to achieve our many shared objectives.”
