Pier Guidi drove a Ferrari 430 GT in the Spanish GT Championship and Italian GT Championship in 2005 and 2006, for the Scuderia Playteam. He won the 2005 Italian title, but missed out on the Spanish crown due to missing one race alongside team owner Giambasttista Giannocaro. In 2007 he moved to the FIA GT Championship, driving a Maserati MC12. He has also driven in the Italian Formula 3000 Championship.

In 2008 he drove the Galatasaray SK car in the Superleague Formula, scoring three podium finishes and taking the team to eighth overall in the final standings.

In 2014, driving a Level 5 Motorsport Ferrari F458 Italia, he won the GT Daytona (GTD) class at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, one of the premier motor races in the American Tudor United SportsCar Championship.

In 2017, Ferrari reached a technical and racing agreement with Alessandro Pier Guidi. The Italian driver competed in the 2017 season of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) pairing up with James Calado in the 488 GTE no. 51 managed on the track by the AF Corse team. Currently competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship for AF Corse, he is the current World Champion, alongside his fellow James Calado, in LMGTE Pro class, after winning the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship. Pier Guidi will thus join the other official Ferrari GT race drivers.

2014 (GTD)Edit

Level 5 Motorsports won the 2014 24 Hours of Daytona in the GT Daytona class with its No. 555 Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 of Scott Tucker, Townsend Bell, Bill Sweedler, Jeff Segal and Alessandro Pier Guidi, despite the car having initially been handed a penalty for late-race avoidable contact. IMSA reversed the call more than four hours after the race, declaring the No. 555 car the winners in GTD.[1]
