Kjellerup by Écurie Prenois is a racing team based in Dijon-Prenois, France, currently competing in F1RWRS. It was created in late 2017, when Danish businessman and amateur racing driver Mattias Kjellerup bought the assets of Boxtel Engineering and joined forces with Écurie Prenois to set up a racing team to compete in the 2018 F1RWRS season.

Kjellerup experienced a promising debut season as they finished in 3rd place in the Constructors' Championship with Dutch rookie Bastiaan van Nieuwenhuijzen amassing five race wins after joining the team mid-season due to the folding of Equipe Gauthier caused by financial issues. For 2019, three-time ARWS champion Mark Dagnall joined the team; this driver pairing combined with perhaps the best car on the grid stunned the field in what was regarded as the most dominant season in series' history. Kjellerup won 15 out of the 18 races (van Nieuwenhuijzen 8 wins, Dagnall 7 wins) and completely outclassed the field by scoring more than double of second-placed Voeckler's points total by scoring 209 points to the French team's 88.
