Guy Chasseuil, born 26 January 1942 in Paris, is a French former racing driver. During his racing career he specialized in rallying and endurance racing.

Career

Guy Chasseuil's first major race was the 1966 24 Hours of Spa, driving an  NSU 1000 TT.

Chasseuil began his career in the early 1960s in the French Rally Championship, first with co-driver Jean Todt, then Christian Baron. He achieved success in African rallies, but only raced the Paris Dakar once in 1981 in a Porsche 924.[1]

Although he remained active in rallying throughout his career, he achieved notable successes in road and circuit racing. In 1968 he made his debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and one year later won the 24-hour race at Spa-Francorchamps with his longtime teammate Claude Ballot-Léna. In 1970, he celebrated his first class victory at Le Mans, when he finished sixth overall with Ballot-Léna in a Porsche 914/6 GT. In 1970, he partnered with Ove Andersson and Björn Waldegård at the Marathon de la Route at the Nürburgring, where the trio placed third overall.

Over the course of his career Chasseuil had twelve Le Mans starts. He came closest to an overall win in 1975 as a works driver with Ligier. Chasseuil and partner Jean-Louis Lafosse piloted one of three Ligier JS2s. The duo was to drive a conservative race and bring the Ligier safely to the finish. When two JS2s retired during the night, however, team management changed tactics and let the Chasseuil/Lafosse car chase the leaders. The two gradually moved up the field, finishing second to the Gulf GR8 of Jacky Ickx and Derek Bell because they ran out of time.

He continued racing sports cars until the early 1980s, appearing at the Sarthe for the last time in 1981. Chasseuil was one of three driving the 917 K/81 for Kremer Racing. The modified twelve-year old design was not competitive, and retired after only 82 laps having damaged an oil line during an off-course excursion.

In the early 1980s Chasseuil also appeared in some World Rally Championship races. At the 1982 Tour de Corse, he drove a Ferrari 308GTB supplied by the French Ferrari importer Charles Pozzi. Ten years earlier he had driven a Ford GT40 in the same rally.

After his racing career ended he became a stuntman/stunt-driver, and worked on films such as  Le Mans, and  Ronin.[2]
