Guy Ligier


Guy Camille Ligier (12 July 1930 – 23 August 2015) was a French rugby player, racing driver and later a Formula One team owner. He first made his name as a rugby player in the late 1940s when he was working as a butcher's assistant in his home town of Vichy, Allier. An orphan, he was determined to build up a successful business and saved all his money in order to buy a bulldozer and then went into the construction business. When his rugby career ended – after he had played for the French national team – he began racing motorcycles before trying his hand at single-seater racing with a Formula Junior Elva.
