Patrick Carpentier (born on August 13, 1971 in Ville Lasalle, Quebec) is a Canadian race car driver. He is best known for his career in the Champ Car World Series and the IndyCar Series. Patrick is currently a Part Time Driver for Tommy Baldwin Racing

In 2005 Patrick drove for the Red Bull-sponsored team run by Eddie Cheever in the Indy Racing League. Prior to this he spent nearly a decade in the rival ChampCar series with Bettenhausen as a rookie, but subsequently in the team owned by Gerry Forsythe. In his early years he was prone to missing races through injuries, some of which originated off-track.

His first Champ Car victory came in 2001 at Michigan and he then took third in the championship in 2002. Patrick was 5th overall in a disappointing 2003 season (compared to title-winning team-mate Paul Tracy). This weakened his position within the team and he was briefly fired in 2004, later being reinstated in a third team car, allegedly because of his marketing popularity in his homeland. (Team boss Gerry Forsythe was also a part-owner of the series.)
