David Philip Clapham (17 May 1931 in Rawmarsh, Yorkshire, UK – 22 October 2005) was a racing driver and motor sport journalist from South Africa.

He took part in the Formula One Rand Grand Prix in 1963 and 1964, blowing the engine of his Cooper in the latter. He had entered the 1965 South African Grand Prix two weeks later, but he withdrew the entry before the meeting took place.

Clapham also wrote articles and columns in the South African motor sport press, both during and after his racing career, and later remained in the sport in various administrative capacities. He died in 2005 after a short illness.
