John had already tasted success in his native New Zealand with a Brabham BT18 when he made his way to England and walked straight into a job at McLaren working on their racing engines. When his urge to compete resurfaced, he quickly became a leading figure in Formula Atlantic, initially with a March and then with his own Lyncar-Nicholson, in which he won the 1973 and 1974 championships.

By 1973 he had established his own thriving engine business servicing and preparing Cosworths for McLaren and many others, which prevented him from undertaking a major racing programme abroad, but he did dip into Formula 1 with the Lyncar in British events, his best result being a sixth at the 1974 Race of Champions. Plans to purchase a McLaren M23 and have a real go fell through, much to Nicholson's dismay, but he did race subsequently in both Formula 2 and F5000 in 1976, and then took in the Peter Stuyvesant New Zealand series early in 1978, before concentrating on his business commitments and indulging his passion for speed with a new-found interest in powerboat racing.
