AGS Racing, who built and raced the JH 24 and JH 25 Formula 1 cars in the late 1980s, have announced a series of events for F1 and F3000 cars of that period.  AGS has been taking part in demonstrations of cars from the ’80 and ‘90s but wanted to give these cars the opportunity to race.  

“The demand is clearly there, but we have to keep our senses,” said Willy Collignon, CEO of AGS Formula 1 and AGS Racing & Events.  We are therefore going to propose a new concept to minimise the risk of incidents and accidents in the race, especially when starting and overtaking.  It is therefore based on the improvement in performance between the timed practice and the so-called ‘Time Attack’ session that the ranking will be established.  This will allow everyone to ride at their own pace, and to do everything possible to gain speed during the weekend, without necessarily taking reckless risks.”

Each race weekend will consist of two timed sessions and two Each Each race weekend will consist of two timed sessions and two ‘Time Attack’ sessions. Only the latter two will be used to establish the general classification.  In total, competitors will enjoy 1 hour and 40 minutes of track time.  There will be separate classifications for F1 and F3000.

The 2024 calendar includes five events, with the season starting at the Paul Ricard circuit and the Grand Prix de France Historique, and ending with a new event, the Grand Prix du Maroc Historique, jointly promoted by AGS Racing & Events and the Fédération Royale Marocaine des Sports Automobiles (FRMSA).   In between, the championship will pass through Charade as part of the Charade Super Show, Spain and Italy, on circuits that will be made official shortly.  For more information see or email
