Enthusiast for the sports in competition since his young age, Franck likes victory more than everything. Becoming Karting French Champion in 2001, and realizing good performances contesting the Italy and European Championships in 2002, he built up a solid racing experience to excel in driving racing cars.

After two years in Formula Renault in the best French teams, Franck decided to move in England to set up a new challenge. He joined the Manor Motorsport Team which welcomed drivers like Kimi Raikonnen and Lewis Hamilton in the past. Franck finished the 2006 season winning the Formula Renault Winter Series Championship with 4 victories over 4 races.

In 2007, Franck finished 7th and best rookie in the F3 Euroseries with Manor Motorsport, one of the most prestigious series in the world of motorsport. Thanks to his 2007 results, Franck became Volkswagen official driver for the 2008 F3 Euroseries Championship. After a rich and intensive technical collaboration with Volkswagen and his Team Signature, Franck achieved at Brands Hatch one of the first victory of the German Manufacturer since he decided to come back in Formula 3 at the end of 2007.

In 2009, Franck faced a new challenge with the Le Mans Series Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. His team Spirit and his willingness to succeed allowed him to achieve fantastic results. These performances made him Aston Martin Official Driver Partner for 2010.

Last year, Franck competed in the Le Mans Series, and the 24 hours of Le Mans, with one of the most prestigious Car manufacturer around the world. The Signature Aston Martin achieved a superb second in the LMS Championship but unfortunately the 24 hours of Le Mans was a disappointment when his team-mate Vanina Ickx had a crash in the 24 hours while they were running for a top 5 finish.
