Alain Carpentier de Changy (born 5th February, 1922 in Brussels, Belgium, died 5th August, 1994 in Etterbeek, Belgium) was a Belgian racing driver.

Carpentier held the honourific title of Comte de Changy, which was a title originally awarded to his ancestor Francois Carpentier - a high ranking major in the French Cavalry - in 1556 for valour during wars with the Spanish Empire.

In the early 1950s, de Changy would be a frequent competitor in rallies in his native Belgium. His only appearance in Formula One would be in a self-entered Alfa Romeo at the 1957 French Grand Prix. He would fail to qualify.
