After a distinguished career in rallying in the sixties with Alpine and Porsche cars, G?rard made the transition to circuit racing with ease, sharing the second-place Porsche with Herrmann at Le Mans in 1969. Over the next few seasons, Larrousse built up a fine reputation in endurance racing, winning the 1971 Sebring 12 Hours and the N?rburgring 1000 Km for Porsche, before enjoying two fabulously successful years with Matra in 1973 and 1974 during which, partnered by Pescarolo, G?rard won Le Mans twice and added further victories at Vallelunga, Dijon, the ?sterreichring, Watkins Glen, Imola and Kyalami. In 1974, he was also the European 2-litre champion in an Alpine-Renault and briefly sampled the ambience of Formula 1, but had a miserable time with the poorly prepared rent-a-drive Finotto Brabham.

In 1975 he undertook a season of Formula 2 with the Elf, winning the Jim Clark Trophy at Hockenheim on aggregate, in addition to a sports car programme for Renault. At the end of the season he was appointed competitions manager at Renault, overseeing the development of their Formula 1 turbo car, and later moved to Ligier before establishing his own team, which competed on minimal budgets and was supported by a motley collection of sponsors from 1987 through to 1994, when the financial climate was such that Larrousse was finally forced to close its doors after a possible merger with French F3000 champions and Grand Prix aspirants DAMS came to nought.
