Oreca (Organisation Exploitation Compétition Automobiles) is a French racing team, founded in 1973 and run by Hugues de Chaunac, former team manager of F1 team AGS.

A very competent team in the International F3000 series (winning both the drivers' and teams' championships in 1989), Oreca bought the Benetton team and joined Formula One in 1990 in a collaboration with Footwork Express Co., Ltd., a Japanese logistics company which was involved in motorsport at that time. The team was therefore known as Footwork Team Oreca.

The team scored its first Formula One point during the team's home race in its maiden season with Frenchman Érik Comas finishing sixth.

After leaving Formula One in the mid-1990's, the team has concentrated on running sports cars and GT cars.
