Allan Simonsen entered motorsport when he was 10 years old. He began in karting and marked himself as a promising young driver by winning 4 danish and scandinavian championships in the following years.

When he changed to real cars the succes went on. He became danish and nordic champion in Formula Ford in his debut season. But after a year in the english Formula Palmer Audi he disappeared from the danish medias.

A few years later he made a strong return. Having relaunched his career in Australia driving GT-cars and occasionaly the V8 Supercars, he now returned to the european racetracks driving GT-cars. In Australia he was a well known name in racing having won the 2007 Australian GT Championship.

He quickly established himself as a quick and reliable GT-driver in Europe while he maintained his contacts in Australia. This meant he was driving more or less every week all over the world.

For 2013 he was contracted for Aston Martin Racing as a part of a team consisting of 3 Danish drivers. This team took a first and a second in the first two World Endurance Championship races of the year and headed for the Le Mans 24 hours as firm favourites for a GTE AM class victoy. But it was not to be. Only 9 minutes into the race Allan Simonsen hit the guardrail at Tertre Rouge very hard and shortly after he died of his injuries.
