Sean Wilson (born 7 November 1969 in York, England) [Oakes, P.(2004). "British Speedway Who's Who". ISBN 0-948882-81-6] is a former international speedway rider who has ridden for Great Britain at test level.

Career summary

Wilson had a career spanning 20 years, starting and finishing at Sheffield. He became Premier League Riders Champion three times.

His career ended early due to a number of injuries. In 2004 whilst riding in Joe Screen's testimonial at Belle Vue he crushed the C7 vertebrate in his neck leaving him in a neck brace for several months. He returned in 2005 but suffered a dislocated shoulder and a fractured humerus. He was subsequently, much to his disappointment, released at the end of 2005 which triggered a retirement.

After retirement

Wilson now has a speedway engine building business and counts former world champion Gary Havelock and Kyle Legault amongst his customers.
