Testut’s debut in racing took place at the beginning of September 1956 at the Course de Cote de Vuillafans-Echevanne in France, driving an O.S.C.A. MT4 roadster where he finished second. This was followed up with a 3rd place finish at the wheel of a Porsche 356 at the Coupe d’Automne toward the end of September.
Testut’s victory at the Vuillafans-Echevannes sport car event in 1957 earned him a congratulatory letter from the Maserati brothers, who had formed OSCA after being forced out of their company bearing their name.
Testut entered 2 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, both in Monaco, in 1958 and 1959. On both occasions he drove his Maserati 250F and both times he failed to qualify. In 1958 he also entered a car for Chiron. For both drivers it would be their last attempt to race in Monaco. Tesnut performed better at the 1958 Syracuse Grand Prix when he retired with engine failure when he was running seventh with ten laps to go.
