Mark Dagnall (born 23 July, 1992 in Oxford, England) is a British racing driver who has won the Formula 1 Rejects World Race Series Drivers' Championship on three separate occasions in 2013, 2014, and 2015. He currently holds the record for the most career wins as well as the most wins in both a single and debut season, all with 7. He is the son of former Formula One World Champion Chris Dagnall.

For the first three years of his F1RWRS career, Dagnall drove for his father's team - firstly Dagnall Engineering before being renamed DGNgineering after the first year. The team and Mark were able to dominate the series and secured both championships in 2013 and 14. In 2015, Dagnall's father Chris announced his team would be leaving F1RWRS to focus on an F1 effort and for the last four races Mark switched to the Australian MRT team where he was able to clinch his third consecutive drivers' title.

In 2016 Dagnall joined MRT full-time but the season was plagued with reliability issues. The car, much like the DGNgineering cars before it that Mark had driven, was one of the fastest on the grid but the British triple champion could only manage two race finishes all year, a race win at the US South GP and a fifth place in Monaco. The unsuccessful year left Dagnall disgruntled with MRT's management and well before the end of the season he entered into negotiations with other teams in an attempt to secure himself better machinery for 2017. Ultimately he signed for Jones Racing, who had taken another former MRT driver, Rhys Davies to his first and only F1RWRS title before his retirement at the end of 2016.
