AKKA-ASP Team presentation

Two decades of titles and success!

Twenty years ago, in 1999, Jérôme Policand, then a driver on the Clio V6 Trophy, created Auto Sport Promotion (ASP). It was the beginning of an incredible adventure that would combine professionalism and talent to achieve performance and success in France, Europe and even on the other side of the Atlantic ocean ... Above all, it is a story of men and passion respecting sporting values based on courage, tenacity and will, and a strong "team spirit", the key to any success. A story of drivers, engineers, mechanics who understand each other at a glance, without any word, and who are looking for the same target... victory!

The team's history began in 1999 with the Clio V6 European Trophy victory, a success confirmed between 2003 and 2010, with 9 national titles (drivers and team) in the French Porsche Carrera Cup. From 2011, the squad took a new dimension and was committed to the international scene in the GT3 category. The goal was achieved with no less than 7 crowns! In 2014, for the very first time, the ASP team enter the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A very particular moment for the "Boss", who participated 13 times in the most prestigious endurance race.
