Robert Bloch is a French racing driver who, along with André Rossignol, won the 1926 24 Hours of Le Mans for French manufacturer Lorraine-Dietrich. Robert Bloch had been part of Lorraine-Dietrich's racing team since the inaugural 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1923, finishing the event, but struggled to finish over the next two years. Following Rossignol's initial win in 1925, Bloch was partnered with the experienced winner and the duo led a Lorraine-Dietrich dominance of the event in 1926, winning ahead of the two other entries from the company.
Bloch missed Le Mans in 1927 after Lorraine-Dietrich chose not to enter a team, but Bloch was hired by Charles Terres Weymann in 1928 to drive his privately entered Stutz Blackhawk. Bloch, with co-driver Éduoard Brisson, finished the race second overall behind the factory Bentley team.
