Donald Beauman (born 26 July 1928 in Farnborough, died 9 July 1955 in Rathnew, Ireland) was a British racing driver. A friend of Mike Hawthorn, Beauman raced successfully in Formula 3, Formula 2 and sportscars. After several good results in non-championship races in 1954 and a participation in the 1955 Grand Prix de Rouen-les-Essarts, Beauman was highly-rated, but he was sadly killed in an accident during the Leinster Trophy in 1955, aged only 26.
