Alan Blencowe (born 22 October 1976) is a British auto racing driver. He started racing in the 750MC Stock Hatch Series in 1999, winning one race and finishing 4th in the championship driving a Peugeot 205 GTI. In 2000 he raced in the Ford Fiesta Zetec Championship finishing 5th in the championship and also becoming the winter series champion. He stayed in the series for another year, this time finishing 4th in the championship.

For 2002 he made the move up to the BTCC with Gary Ayles Motorsport in the Production class. His debut weekend didn't turn out well, colliding with his teammate in race 1 and got involved in another accident in race 2. Over the course of the season he picked up four Production class podiums, his best result a second place at Thruxton and eventually finishing 7th in the Production class championship. He moved to the Barwell Motorsport team in 2003 and despite only taking one Production class win, his consistency of 14 podiums and only one DNF took him to 2nd in the Production class championship.

In 2004 he made the move over to the Britcar Endurance season, again driving for Barwell Motorsport in a Honda Civic Type-R, taking two class wins. For 2005 he moved to the SEAT Cupra Championship, finishing 3rd four times and taking 5th in the championship. In 2006 he finished 2nd in the championship, again his consistency playing part with only one win but 10 podium finishes. He stayed for one more year driving the new SEAT León, winning two races before he left the series after Snetterton.

He was planning to race for Tech-Speed Motorsport as Paul O'Neill's teammate for 2010 but this was taken by John George.
