Andrea Belicchi (born 18 December 1975 in Parma) is an Italian professional racing driver. He has competed in such series as the Porsche Supercup, Le Mans Series and FIA World Touring Car Championship.

He won the Russian Formula Three Championship in 2002 and Finnish Formula Three Championship in 2003 with Lukoil Racing and previously the Renault Sport Spider Elf Trophy in 1998. He also competed in Italian Formula 3000 and Formula Renault V6 Eurocup before switching to sports car racing.

He was the GTS class champion in 2006 International GT Open along with Stefano Zonca. Also in 2006 he got a GT2 class win at the 2006 1000 km of Nürburgring on a GPC Ferrari. In 2007 he drove a Spyker at the Le Mans Series. In 2008 he switched to the LMP2 class, finishing second in class at the 1000 km of Catalunya. In 2009 he progressed to the LMP1 class, where he took an 2nd overall finish at the 1000 km of Silverstone.

For the 2010 Le Mans Series, Belicchi switched to Rebellion Racing. Driving a Lola-Judd, he finished third overall at the 2010 8 Hours of Castellet. After several teams defected to the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, Belicchi took two second place finishes in the Le Mans Series with Jean-Christophe Boullion as partner, and was runner-up in the LMP1 class.

As the LMP1 class was dropped from the 2012 Le Mans Series program, Belicchi stayed with Rebellion at the new FIA World Endurance Championship, driving a Lola-Toyota with Harold Primat. With two fourth place finishes at Silverstone and Shanghai, he was 16th in the drivers standings. In 2013, he continued with Rebellion at the LMP1 class, finishing third at Fuji and fourth at Shanghai. In 2014 he finished sixth overall at Bahrain and eighth at Shanghai. With three class wins, he ended as LMP1 Private Teams runner-up behind his teammates.

In 2015, Belicchi switched to toring cars, as he joined the TCR International Series with a SEAT León.
