A member of the famed Ecurie Belgique, Laurent raced the team's Veritas RS, before making occasional appearances in their newly acquired Lago-Talbot in 1951, taking seventh place at Albi. The following year he ventured to Helsinki to win an F1 race against entirely local opposition, without an F1 car among them!

Now renamed Ecurie Francorchamps, the team ran a Ferrari T500 in 1952, but with de Tornaco behind the wheel at Spa, Laurent hired an HWM for the Grand Prix. It was Roger's turn to try the T500 in the German GP and he finished a solid sixth. He coaxed a few other decent placings from the yellow-painted machine, most notably second at Chimay in 1953 and fourth at Syracuse in 1954.

Laurent also enjoyed quite a successful time in the team's sports car programme, particularly when the Jaguar XK120 was replaced by a C-Type in 1954. He was third in the Dutch GP for sports machines and, with Swaters, third at Reims and then fourth at Le Mans. A crash in practice for a race at Bari in 1955 left him with a broken leg, but he did return when fit.

His final racing season was in 1956, when he once again took fourth place at Le Mans in a Jaguar D-Type shared with Rouselle.
