Marcel Lehoux
Marcel Lehoux (3 April 1888 – 19 July 1936) was a French racing driver and businessman.
Marcel Lehoux at Monza in 1930
Lehoux was born in Vendée in France. His racing career was built on the back of his successful trading company that operated in French Algeria. He placed second at the Grand Prix de la Marne at Reims in 1929, behind Zenelli and ahead of his friend, Philippe Étancelin, making a Bugatti sweep of the podium.[1] At the 1930 Algerian Grand Prix, he followed Étancelin home to second.[1] In 1931, he shared a Bugatti with Étancelin for both the Italian and French Grands Prix, events of 10 hours duration, run to Formula Libre rules; the duo dropped out both times. He would later race for Bugatti and Scuderia Ferrari racing teams.
Lehoux died after a collision in the 1936 Deauville Grand Prix.
