Richard Robarts (born 22 September 1944 in Bicknacre, Essex[1]) is a British former racing driver from England. He participated in 4 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on 13 January 1974. He scored no championship points.

Robarts began his career in Formula Ford, competing from 1969 to 1972.[2] In 1973 he drove a GRD in Formula Three and shared the Lombard North Central, British Formula 3 championship with Tony Brise.[2]

After paying for an F1 drive with Brabham in 1974, Robarts lost it after three races to the better-funded Rikky von Opel. He later found a seat with Williams, but before Robarts could start a race, the team gave the opportunity to Tom Belsø instead. Robarts later raced in Formula 2 before moving on to other series.
