G2 Racing AG was founded in 2002 by Felice de Grandi in Baar (Zug), Switzerland.
Felice de Grandi, together with his daughter Sabrina de Grandi, developed a competitive racing team over the following years.
Felice de Grandi started to race in Honda Trophy Europe with a Honda NSX. Later on the young talented pilot Björn Grossmann joined the team racing a modified Honda Integra. G2racing dominated at this time the Honda Trophy Europe with countless places on the podium.
In 2006 the successful team switched to Ferrari Challenge Europe, starting with a Ferrari 360 Challenge and one year later with 2 Ferrari F430 Challenge. Already in the first season, G2racing was winning the Ferrari Challenge Europe to the big surprise of the long-established Ferrari community.
This success triggered the development in serving not only the own racing cars. G2racing started to provide services also to other successful pilots. More and more clients were joining in the following years. Not only racing on Ferraris but also on Porsches and Lamborghinis in different racing series at the same time.
