Arthur Jules Joseph Duray (9 February 1882 – 11 February 1954) was a Belgian racing driver and aviator. An early aviator, he held Belgian license #3. Duray is best known for breaking the land speed record on three separate occasions between July, 1903 and March, 1904.

After serving in the French Foreign Legion during the First World War, Duray acquired French nationality by naturalization in 1933.[1]

American racer George Stewart legally changed his name to Leon Duray in tribute to Arthur Duray.
