Henri JULIEN, an enthusiastic mechanic, created
the AGS (Automobiles Gonfaronnaises Sportives) team at
Gonfaron in the heart of Provence in 1968.
went through all the stages of single-seater competitions
throughout a period of 36 years dedicated to the
production, development and operation of these
Grand Prix de Monaco 91
In 1986, after winning several F2 titles,
AGS joined F1 and became ‘AGS FORMULE 1’.
During the next 6 years,
many famous drivers sat behind the wheel
of AGS single-seaters in the F1 World Championships
and repeatedly scored points in the ‘Drivers’
and ‘Constructors’ classifications:
PIRONI, CAPELLI, FABRE, MORENO, STREIFF,
TARQUINI, WINKELOCK, DALMAS...
In 1992, AGS created the F1-LEISURE concept, the
first such initiative in the world.
FORMULE 1 made its entire F1 fleet,
straight out of the World Championships, available
for individuals to experience the ultimate thrill
and for managers who want to motivate their clients and staff.
A world first!
From now on, sitting behind the wheel of a real
F1 like a Grand Prix driver is a privilege available
Between 2001 and 2003 AGS FORMULE 1 designed
and built 5 new F1s, 2 of which were two-seaters.
After 10 years experience in teaching people
how to drive a Formula 1, AGS FORMULE 1
put the knowledge it had gained at the highest
level of the competition into driving
courses and built 5 new F1s: the SH01,
02 and 03 and 2 AGSX2 two-seaters, genuine
F1s developed by the AGS R&D team and
full of the latest technology.
Today, AGS will be world leader in F1 courses.
FORMULE 1 now has 14 years experience and a fleet
of 26 single-seaters: ARROWS, PROST, JORDAN,
V8 or V10 engines, manual or steering wheel changes,
with or without antiskid, vacuum or mechanical
timing control, etc.
