Charles Martin Wright (born 26 October 1988) is a British speedway rider.
In 2011 he had a spell on loan at Leicester Lions, replacing Jamie Courtney, only to be replaced himself later in the season. In 2012 he rode for Edinburgh Monarchs until being released in July. Shortly after he went on to join the Glasgow Tigers only a few weeks after his axe from Edinburgh replacing long serving reserve Jayden O'Malley and the Buxton Hitmen in the National League at the high flying number one spot. In late August 2013, he replaced Stefan Nielsen in the Somerset Rebels side, and made an immediate impact when scoring 9-points in the 2nd leg of the KO Cup Semi-final at Edinburgh, which ended in a 90-90 aggregate draw and had to be ridden again the following month, when the Rebels eventually carried off the Cup. He went to become a major contributor to the Rebels title and KO Cup winning efforts. In 2014, he was one of only two riders retained from the Rebels double winning septet, with the other being Nick Morris. In December 2016 he signed for Redcar Bears in the new British SGB Championship for the 2017 season.
