A very useful performer, Guelfi confined himself to racing in North Africa and France during a long competition career that stretched back to 1950 when he raced a Delahaye. After driving a Jaguar, he came to prominence in 1953 racing a Gordini sports car, taking it to class and outright wins at Agadir. He shared a works car with Behra in the 12-hour race at Casablanca that year, but it was retired with a broken shock absorber.

Joining the ever-changing roster of pilots at Gordini, Guelfi was given a single appearance at Pescara in 1954, but his race ended on the first lap when the car caught fire. His true métier was sports cars, however, and, with Jacky Pollet, he drove a works Gordini into sixth place at Le Mans, taking the 2000 cc-3000 cc class win. Though still racing mainly in Morocco - he was champion in 1955 - André continued to make regular sorties to France. In 1957 he finished a distant seventh in the Pau GP as the pale-blue machines were reaching imminent extinction. The new rear-engined Coopers were now the way forward and Guelfi made a good impression when he took second place in the Prix de Paris at Montlhéry in June 1958, only three seconds behind Henry Taylor in a similar car. With a Formula 2 class being added to bolster the field for the first (and only) Grand Prix of Morocco at season's end, Guelfi entered a car, but in truth was not as quick as could have been expected, though he stayed the distance to finish last.

He subsequently raced on in Morocco through the sixties, and as late as 1968 his name still appeared in the results when he took second place in a race in Rabat in a Porsche 911R.
