AGS made their Formula One debut in 1988, running a pair of cars for Philippe Streiff and Alex Caffi. Streiff scored AGS's first World Championship point at the French Grand Prix on the Paul Ricard circuit - only a short drive from the team's Gonfaron base.
AGS's sophomore season started with immediate setbacks, with Caffi departing for Scuderia Italia and Streiff permanently sidelined after a accident in pre-season testing left him a quadriplegic. The team ducked into Formula 3000 and signed Eddie Jordan Racing's 1988 pairing of Jack Christopherson and Olivier Grouillard - both of which coming off a good season in the second tier series. Christopherson took the team's first point of the season, with a sixth place in the United States Grand Prix - a race beset with attrition - although the car had shown good pace all year.
