The AGS Racing Team had been founded in the 1950s in a small petrol station with adjoining workshop in Gonfaron a small village in the South of France. One can hardly imagine that these tiny rooms and premises remained the Formula 1 team’s base until 1988. Before the start of the 1990 F1 season Cyril de Rouvre had taken over AGS, moved the team to new buildings at the small Circuit du Var in the outback of the Côte d’Azur and contracted Hugues de Chaunac as new race director. French fashion designer Ted Lapidus promoted his perfume brand in big letters on the black car but a chronic lack of money remained.

After the disastrous results of 1989 the drivers Gabriele Tarquini and Yannick Dalmas were damned to the much hated pre-qualification in 1990 and regularly failed to pre-qualify early in the season. At the team’s home race at Le Castellet Yannick Dalmas finally managed to qualify his JH25 Cosworth 26th and last on the grid, ending the race in 17th position. Finishing 9th at the Spanish Grand Prix was the undoubted highlight of a season characterised by further non-qualifications and retirements. A frustrated Dalmas left for sports car racing. AGS Automobiles Gonfaronaise Sportive quit F1 forever before the end of the 1991 season.
