Lance Macklin (2 September 1919, Londonmarker – 29 August 2002, Tenterdenmarker, Kentmarker) was a Britishmarker racing driver from Englandmarker. He participated in 15 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 18 May 1952.

Lance Macklin was the son of British automotive entrepreneur Noel Macklin, founder of both the Invicta and Railton car companies, as well as Fairmile Marine, a manufacturer of motor gun and torpedo boats during World War II.

During his Formula One career, Macklin scored no championship points, principally due to his uncompetitive HWM cars. His best career result came when he won the non-Championship BRDC International Trophy, at Silverstonemarker in 1952.

In the 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans he was caught up in the accident which killed Pierre Levegh and 80 spectators when he made a defensive move to avoid hitting Mike Hawthorn, and Levegh's car clipped his. Although Macklin's car crashed, he was uninjured. Following a later incident in the Tourist Trophy at Dundrodmarker, in which Macklin crashed his Austin-Healey 100S avoiding an accident in which Jim Mayers and William T Smith were killed, Macklin retired from motor sport.
