Peter Broeker (born 15 May 1926 in Germany – died 4 November 1980 in Ottawa)[1] was a racing driver driver from Canada. He participated in one World Championship Formula One Grand Prix, the 1963 United States Grand Prix, driving a Stebro.[2] He finished seventh, albeit 22 laps down, and scored no championship points. According to the Toronto Star at the time: "Broeker, first Canadian ever to compete in a world championship Formula One race in a Canadian-built car, finished seventh over-all despite giving away more than 80 horsepower to the rest of the field of 21."[3]

In 1973 Broeker wrote and published Olympic Coins: From Antiquity to the Present.[4] He held US citizenship as well as Canadian.[1]
