In motorsports, the name and reputation of GP Sports (formerly CSS Stellar Sports) is unrivalled. The roots of our motorsports division was established by Julian Jakobi during his tenure at IMG as Head of their International Client Financial and Motorsport divisions. There he looked after the day-to-day business affairs of Formula 1 World Champions and racing legends, Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost. After leaving IMG and establishing CSS Stellar Management in 1997, the company has extended our client base to include drivers competing in all the major international motor-racing series from Formula 1 to the World Rally Championship, from the U.S. based IndyCar Series to NASCAR. Our clients include 2005 & 2011 Indianapolis 500 winner and IndyCar Series Champion, Dan Wheldon, 3-time Indianapolis 500 winner and 4-time IndyCar Series Champion, Dario Franchitti, Formula 1 drivers Pedro de la Rosa and Sébastien Buemi, 2-time Le Mans 24 Hour winner Allan McNish.
In addition to representing and managing some of the biggest names in motorsports, GP Sports has also built their reputation on consulting for several high-profile sponsors looking to identify opportunities in the world of racing. With our vast expertise across many formulas of US and European motorsports and the professional relationships we have forged with racing team owners, sponsors and drivers, GP Sports continues to assist and consult sponsors looking to navigate the complex sport.
