Sir Leslie Lynn Marr of Sunderland, 2nd Baronet (born 14 August 1922 and died 4 May 2021) was a British artist and Formula One driver. He participated in 22 non-championship races in a privateer Connaught between 1952 and 1955. He also participated in the 1954 and 1955 British Grand Prix, although he scored no championship points.

Upon his father's death in 1932, Marr inherited the baronetcy held by his grandfather.

During World War II, Marr became interested in painting, mainly landscapes. After the war, he enrolled in art school and later studied under David Bomberg. Marr's paintings are held by a variety of British art galleries.
