The 9th Aintree 200 was a motor race, run to Formula One rules, held on 18 April 1964 at Aintree Circuit, England. The race was run over 67 laps of the circuit, and was won by Australian driver Jack Brabham in a Brabham BT7.

During most of the race, Brabham duelled for the lead with Lotus driver Jim Clark, but the Australian won easily after Clark was obstructed by André Pilette and crashed on lap 47.

There was also a class for Formula Two cars in this race, which was won by Mike Spence after the two cars in front of him retired on the last lap; Brian Hart suffering a driveshaft failure and Alan Rees running out of fuel.
