Sopot Wyścigi railway station is a railway station serving the city of Sopot, in the Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland. The station opened in 1975 and is located on the Gdańsk Śródmieście–Rumia railway. The train services are operated by SKM Tricity.

The name is derived from nearby horse racing centre (pl. Wyscigi).

A number of sources, including a map from 1919 state that before World War II the stop Schmierau was located approximately 200 m closer to Gdańsk, at the height of the racecourse. Others report that it was a seasonal stop, run only during organised racing.
