Bernard White Racing was a motor racing team from the United Kingdom. The team was founded by Bernard White and raced in Formula One between 1966 and 1968 using a BRM P261.

In 1966 the team entered cars at the United States Grand Prix and the Mexican Grand Prix with the Scottish driver Innes Ireland, retiring from both races. They also entered the 1966 International Gold Cup, a non-Championship race in which Innes Ireland finished fourth, the team's best result in a Formula One race.

In 1967, the team entered two races with David Hobbs. At the British Grand Prix Hobbs finished eighth, and at the Canadian Grand Prix he finished in ninth place. They also entered Hobbs for the 1967 Syracuse Grand Prix but withdrew their car before the race weekend began.
