Anthony Ernest "Tony" Marsh (born 20 July 1931 in Stourbridge, Worcestershire) is a British racing driver from England. His Formula One career was short and unsuccessful, but he later enjoyed great success in hillclimbing, having won the British Hillclimb Championship on a record six occasions, divided into two sets of three successive titles. His first 'batch' came in a Cooper-JAP in 1955-56-57, while exactly a decade later (1965-66-67) he repeated the hat-trick at the wheel of his own Marsh-GM special.

Marsh has continued to drive in top-class hillclimbs into his seventies. In 2007 Parley Books published his autobiography: "Tony Marsh: The great all-rounder: In and out of motorsport" [ [http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0955482607/ Amazon.co.uk listing] ]
