Philippe Alliot (Voves, 27 July 1954) is a French former driver of Formula 1.
Prior to his career in Formula One he competed from 1976 to 1978 in Formula Renault, and won the championship in 1978. After this success he moved to French Formula 3 in 1979 and the following year to European Formula 3. By 1983 he moved to Formula Two but hit the headlines that year when he finished third in the Le Mans 24 Hours with Michael and Mario Andretti in a Kremer Porsche.
- French driver Philippe Alliot held on tightly to this PERSONAL steering wheel during the year he passed from the Ligier team to that of Larrousse, which in that year fitted the Lola chassis. The French team's single-seater was not, however, a match for the other rival teams as it had a Ford Cosworth engine, in place of the turbo. This resulted in somewhat modest finishes for the driver: three sixth places at the Grands Prix of Germany, Spain and Mexico respectively.
