Amon (also known as Chris Amon Racing), was a Formula One team that competed in 1974.

Fresh from the 1973 disaster at Tecno, but encouraged by the potential of the undeveloped Gordon Fowell chassis, driver Chris Amon tried running his own F1 car in 1974. Financial backing came from John Dalton, and the car, designed by Fowell, followed the Lotus 72 in some areas of construction, with sophisticated torsion-bar suspension and side radiators.

The venture failed completely. Amon qualified but retired from the team's first race at the Spanish Grand Prix. Both Amon and Larry Perkins failed to qualify the car for the German Grand Prix. Amon failed to qualify again for the Italian Grand Prix and the team closed down after the race when the money ran out.
