Eiji "Tarzan" Yamada (山田 英二? Yamada Eiji, 25 April 1962) is a Japanese time attack driver. He is currently a judge at American Formula D events. Yamada has raced in both the JGTC and Japanese Touring Car Championship.
He gained popularity on several Japanese videos with BAKA-MON, his trademarked logo that translates loosely as "stupid monkey." Players of the Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights video game need to compete against a representation of Yamada to advance in the game. Before that, he was a regular feature on Video Option.
