Awarded a George Medal for his attempts to save Niki Lauda after Lauda's crash at the Nurburgring in 1976, Guy later became a hugely successful sponsorship consultant, a role he took up straight after racing retirement, and in that particular field of the sport, he was a hugely significant and influential person. Formerly lived in France, but now lives in Clifton, Galway, Ireland. Very sadly though, he has suffered a couple of strokes in recent years, and is now wheelchair bound, and is sadly not in the best of health, although he remains mentally alert. Son Sean followed him into racing, and was at the height of his success at the time of his tragic death in a crash whilst as a passenger, performing in his role as a driver coach.
