Marcel Renault

Marcel Renault in 1902.

Marcel Renault (1872, Paris–May 26, 1903, Payré) was a French racing car driver and industrialist, co-founder of the car maker Renault, and the brother of Louis and Fernand Renault.

He and his brothers jointly founded the Renault company on 25 February 1899. He and Louis raced the cars it built starting the next year. He died at the age of 31 on 25 May 1903 of severe injuries he sustained the day before in the Paris-Madrid race.

After his death, a statue was built in his memory which later would be destroyed by the German attacks during World War II.
