Perrodo is a motorsport enthusiast, he started with classic car racing in 2010.[7][8]

He competes in endurance racing in the FIA World Endurance Championship, currently having leveraged his fortune into a ride with AF Corse in the LMP2 class, having initially competed in the GTE Am class from 2013 until 2016. He has taken part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, V de V Series, Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup, European Le Mans Series (ELMS), United SportsCar Championship and the 24 Hours Series.

Perrodo again competed for AF Corse in the 2022 24 Hours of Le Mans, driving the team's No. 83 LMP2 entry. While running side-by-side with the GTE-Pro class leading No. 64 Corvette of Alexander Sims in the final hours of the race, Perrodo swerved sharply left and sent the Corvette crashing into the barriers in the middle of the Mulsanne Straight. AF Corse's No. 51 GTE-Pro entry was running second in class at the time and went on to inherit the class lead from the Corvette.[9]
