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:
“Whenever Im asked why Southern writers particularly have a penchant for writing about freaks, I say it is because we are still able to recognize one. To be able to recognize a freak, you have to have some conception of the whole man, and in the South the general conception of man is still, in the main, theological.”
—Flannery OConnor (19251964)
