About AKG Motorsport
AKG Motorsport was founded in 1985. Owner Andreas Kritikos has more than three and a half decades of mechanical experience and has focused almost exclusively on the BMW marque for the past twenty-eight years. During this time, AKG Motorsport specialized in the construction of fast, reliable road racing sedans, winning at both the regional and national level to this day.
AKG Motorsport incorporated old world craftsmanship and up-to-the-minute technology in the building of individualized race cars. Andy Kritikos performed all aspects of construction: from chassis work to engine building, very little labor was contracted out. The result: cars both competitive and reliable.
AKG cars have numerous SCCA, MCSCC, ICSCC, and NASA wins, including trophies in a variety of enduros. Enduros are the ultimate test of a car's quality and workmanship - and from 4 hour to 24 hour, AKG cars have consistently excelled in the enduros they campaign. Andy was also on the forefront of engineering motor transplants: from his early swaps of 3.5L engines into BMW 2002's to more recent swaps such as a 5.0L V12 into a BMW e36 chassis.
While BMW is AKG's specialty, we have been involved with other marques as well, including Jaguar and Volkswagen. AKG was hired to construct the first New Beetle race car in 1998. The project, from inception to raceday, was accomplished in just over a month. The Hippies New Beetle, owned by Australian entrepreneur Ross Palmer, campaigned its extraordinary debut at the 1998 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
