Successful in sportscars, taking up the discipline after leaving F1 in 1994, Gounon recently scaled down his activities to the big races and has done some more historic racing. He also works as a test driver for the Blancpain Endurance series, and his son has also started racing, which Jean-Marc is mainly focusing on now, as well as running the family garage concern, which with Jean-Marc now in charge of, has expanded to four different sites, in or near Aubenas. The dealership specialises in Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Hyundai cars as well as many others. Gounon began his career in the early 1980's and took wins in French Formula 3, Formula 3000 and then after his single-seater career finished, the Sportscar World Championship.
