Ian Ashley (born 26 October 1947 in Wuppertal, Germany) was a Formula One driver who raced for the Token, Williams, BRM and Hesketh teams. Prior to Formula One he began racing in 1966 when he took a course at the Jim Russell Racing School. He was fast but rather erratic, and soon earned the nickname "Crashley". He reached Formula 5000 in 1972 and was a front-runner in 1973, when he won the European Championship and finished third the following year. He made his debut in Formula One in 1974 in the Williams team. During 1975 and 1977 he suffered some spectacular accidents. After Formula One he built a career as a pilot for executive jets in the United States.
