Élie Marcel Bayol (28 February 1914 in Marseille - 25 May 1995 in La Ciotat)[1] was a French racing driver who raced in Formula One for the O.S.C.A. and Gordini teams. He started his career in 1950 racing DB-Panhards sports cars and progressed to Formula 2 races and hillclimbs around France. His best result was a fourth place in the Circuit de Cadours, in 1951. In 1953 he was fourth again at Pau and obtained a pole position at Albi. He also succeeded the same year to win the Aix les Bains Circuit du Lac Grand Prix (Formula 2).

His Formula One World Championship career consisted of entering 8 races over a five-year span. After two years with an OSCA, he joined the Gordini team in 1954 with Jean Behra. He scored his only 2 championship points with a fifth-place finish in Argentina. He also finished fourth at a non-championship event at Pau. In 1956 he raced a few times but then disappeared from single-seater racing.

In sports car racing, he mostly drove DB-Panhards for the Deutsch Bonnet works team, with occasional outings for Gordini. In 1954, he won the 750 c.c. class in 24 Hours of Le Mans, at the wheel of a DB Barquette.
