Stephen South (born 19 February 1952 in Harrow, Middlesex) is a British former racing driver from England. He was educated at Harrow County School for Boys.
He is chiefly known for winning the 1977 British Formula Three Championship. His only Formula One entry was at the 1980 United States Grand Prix West with McLaren standing in for Alain Prost who was injured, but South failed to qualify. His career was abruptly ended later that year when part of one leg was amputated after an accident during practice in a CanAm race at the Trois-Rivieres circuit in Quebec.
In 2008 he was seen at a handful of historic motorsport meetings.

Famous quotes containing the word south:
“They were more than hostile. In the first place, I was a south Georgian and I was looked upon as a fiscal conservative, and the Atlanta newspapers quite erroneously, because they didnt know anything about me or my background here in Plains, decided that I was also a racial conservative.”
—Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
