History

Team Astromega was created in 1995 by Belgian International Formula 3000 driver Mikke Van Hool, who wanted to drive in his own team. Since 1996, Sam Boyle has been the team manager.

In 2003, Werner Gillis, an expert in financial management, became co-team owner. The same year, Robby Arnott joined the team as chief engineer after working with DAMS racing team.

In 2003, a Belgian Formula Renault 1.6 championship was created and Astromega was selected to organise the technical assistance for the series rookie test with assistance of two drivers from normal and Indoor Karting. Later, in the 2006 championship, Astromega ran a car with British driver Craig Dolby who became champion. In 2007, Briton Jack Piper and Latvian Karlīne Štāla (who became the first ever woman to win a single seaters championship), were the team drivers.

Astromega has been involved in A1 Grand Prix since the inaugural season in 2005–06, managing A1 Team China and later A1 Team Portugal.
