Douglas Whiteford (born 1918 in St. Kilda, died 15 January 1979 in Victoria) was an Australian racing driver. With a racing career that lasted from the mid 1930s to 1975, Whiteford won the Australian Grand Prix in 1950, 1952 and 1953, a success he used to appear in two World Championship events. Along with Lex Davison, he drove in the 1950 Indianapolis 500 for Ecurie Australie where he finished 17th despite a late-race accident. Two years later, he competed in the second 1952 Australian Grand Prix. Having won the race earlier that year, he failed to perform in the World Championship event, failing to qualify.
