about Allen Berg

Allen Bernard Berg (born August 1, 1961 in Vancouver, British Columbia) is a former Canadian racing driver who raced for the Osella team in Formula One.

He began in karting in 1978 and switched to cars when he was 20, into Formula Atlantic. In 1982 he won the prestigious Tasman Formula Pacific Series in Australia and New Zealand and entered the British Formula 3 series in 1983. However, his timing was bad since he had to compete against Ayrton Senna and Martin Brundle. He managed to win one race (one which Senna and Brundle opted out of to compete for European F3 points and outright race win) and ended up fifth in the series. The following year he was runner-up in the British F3 series to Johnny Dumfries with eight second places. In 1985 he returned to Canada to seek funding for Formula One. In 1986 he was offered the opportunity to race with the Osella F1 team. He took part in nine races posting commendable results in uncompetitive equipment. He had opportunities to continue in F1 in 1987 however with the cancellation of the Canadian Grand Prix that season was unable to secure a ride.

Berg has remained involved in motor sport as a professional driver, team owner, series administrator, driving coach and instructor. He has competed in sportscar racing and the Trans-Am Series. He spent a season driving a privateer BMW M3 in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft in 1991, before enjoying success on the Mexican racing scene, winning the Mexican Formula 2 championship in 1993. He also won the Indy Lights Panamericana title in 2001 as a driver-owner, before retiring from driving.

He currently operates Allen Berg Racing Schools primarily in Fontana, California, among other locations in southern California. Allen Berg Racing Schools provides a race driving experience in formula racing cars for people with little to no experience. The school also provides instructional programs for up-and-coming drivers to work their way into driving professionally. Multiple graduates of the school have gone on to drive race cars for a career.
