Kenneth McAlpine (born 21 September 1920 in Cobham, Surrey, England, UK) is a British former racing driver and businessman who competed in Formula One in the 1950s. A financial backer of the Connaught team, he competed in seven championship races from 1952 and 1955 and 22 non-championship races between 1951 and 1955. While he failed to score any championship points, he did achieve two podiums in non-championship events in the 1952 Newcastle Journal Trophy (2nd) and the 1954 Lavant Cup (3rd).

Outside of F1, he was a member of the McAlpine family, had a wine-growing business, and is a member of the Air Squadron.

He is currently the oldest living Formula One driver, following the death of André Guelfi in April 2016.
