Hervé Lemonnier (born 9 January 1947 at Lisieux), in motorsport better known under his pseudonym "Knapick", is a French rallycross, rally and ice racing driver of the Andros Trophy series.

Biography[edit]

Lemonnier started his car racing career as a competitor in the 1966 Rallye Côte Fleurie, from 1969 on he began to hide his family name by entering competitions under the alias "Knapick". Being a farm machinery dealer by then, he now chose the brand of Knapick trailers for his pseudonym, for not to show his company's customers that he was one of these "crazy car racers" in his spare time, the businessman from Normandy later moved to Brittany to found a DAF Trucks dealership in Noyal-sur-Vilaine near the town of Rennes.

In 2016 Lemonnier celebrated his 50th year in car racing. Both his daughters, Marie-Laure Lemonnier-Peu (married to 2011 French Rallycross Champion Samuel Peu) and Anne-Sophie de Ganay (née Lemmonier), became successful rallycross and ice racing drivers too. Leading French rally driver Xavier Lemonnier is his nephew.
