Founded in 1997 by Philippe Gache, professional racing driver since 1983, SMG is a professional and independent racing team which succeeded in meeting all the faced challenges. This is so mainly thanks to a huge team-spirit and to a strong will of constantly progressing.  
Over the past few years, and in any motorsports, or on any ground, the SMG geniuses have been conceiving mechanical marvels. This is why, building and driving their cars always generates an enthusiastic atmosphere. 
Whether on ice, on asphalt or on gravel, the SMG team has always been able to adapt to win the race. 
Five participations in the 24 Hours of Le Mans on R&S Ford and Courage, the Pikes Peak race (first category Open 1999-2001), icing races (IRSI 2000 World Champion and 2001 Vice-Champion, 1998 Trophy Andros winner and third in 1999), four victories in the 2002 Super-tourism Championship. 

"Everywhere SMG goes, SMG wins…" 

Settled in the South-East of France in new 3000 m² High-Tech premises, SMG equipped itself to constantly conceive, build and develop their own 2WD rally-raid prototypes. Gathering all the motorsports professions and investing in the latest CAD/CAM technologies, the team has been able to grow relying on its years of experience. 
This year again, SMG won the 2WD category in the 2012 Dakar with the 7th rank in the general classification for the first car. 
The company employs year-round about fifteen people who represent numerous professions such as mechanics, boiler making, coach-building, plastics manufacturing or engineering.
