Arsenio "Dodjie" Laurel (born 14 December 1931 in Tanauan, died 19 November 1967 in Macau) was a Filipino racing driver and lawyer. The son of a former President of the Philippines and youngest of a family of politicians, Laurel began to race Studebakers around an oval in Manila. He was a pioneer of motorsport in the Philippines, and South East Asia in general. He drove for Scuderia Ambrosiana in the 1955 Singapore Grand Prix, and an impressive performance led to a private appearance for his own Écurie Pinoy at the 1956 Thai Grand Prix, where he finished seventh and last. Laurel went on to win the Macau Grand Prix in 1962 and 1963, but died during the race in 1967. He was only 35.
