Formerly a racing instructor at the AGS driving school for many years, Patrick then worked as an engine and fuel technologies consultant in Saudi Arabia. He now lives in France again and is still involved in driver instruction. A race winner in European Formula 3, Patrick also raced in Formula Renault, the Can-Am series and endurance events - racing until 1985 before retiring - as well as his spells in Formula 2 and Formula 1. Gaillard, before he took up racing relatively late compared to his rivals, worked in his father's van and truck hire company.
