The Duqueine brothers, Victor and Gilles, owned a manufacturing facility making high tech components based in Villeurbanne in France. Their first cars were built in 1978 for Formule Renault and their first F3 car followed the next year. Success was not forthcoming and their next F3 chassis would be the VG4 in 1984, they continued to manufacture cars up until 1987 when the lack of any sustained success caused their withdrawal. Duqueine had many other strings to their bow, they have also built monocoques for Ligier as well as components for Renault, Group C sports cars and rally cars. In addition they also work in a number of different industrial areas.
