Michael John Campbell-Jones (born 21 January 1930 in Leatherhead, Surrey)[1] is a former Formula One driver from England. He participated in two World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on June 17, 1962. He scored no championship points.[2] He also participated in numerous non-Championship Formula One races.

After some success in sports car racing in 1958, Campbell-Jones entered Formula Two whilst entering minor Formula One races. In 1962 he joined the Emeryson team but achieved little; his one World Championship entry was in the Belgian Grand Prix, where the Emeryson's gearbox failed in practice. He raced a borrowed Lotus which he retired with gearbox failure, although he was classified 11th.[3] However, he did achieve some minor placings in lesser Formula One races that year. In the 1962 Solitude Grand Prix (non-championship) he had an accident in practice and was badly burnt. [1]

In 1963, he moved to Tim Parnell's team which were running Lolas, but he struggled again with his single Championship entry seeing him finish 13th at the British Grand Prix. [1] After that season, Campbell-Jones faded from the scene.
