Robert "Bob" Evans (born 11 June 1947 in Waddington, Lincolnshire) is a British former racing driver from England. He participated in 11 World Championship Formula One Grands Prix, debuting on 1 March 1975. He scored no championship points. He also competed in numerous non-Championship Formula One races.

Evans followed the usual route through to Formula One, via Formula Ford, Formula 3 and Formula 5000 where he was British champion in 1974. After a season with the struggling BRM team in 1975, Evans tested and occasionally raced for Lotus the following year. He subsequently drove a Brabham for RAM in the 1976 British Grand Prix, before he moved to the Aurora F1 Championship in the late 1970s.
