Samuel "Sam" Tingle (24 August 1921 in Manchester, United Kingdom – 19 December 2008 in Somerset West, South Africa)[1] was a racing driver from Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe.[2] He participated in five Formula One World Championship Grands Prix,[1] debuting on 28 December 1963, but never scored any championship points.[2] He also competed in several non-Championship Formula One races.[3]

He was one of only two drivers from Rhodesia to successfully enter a Formula One race, the other being John Love.[4] A third Rhodesian racer, Clive Puzey, failed to qualify in his Formula One attempt.[5]
